Hamas continues its ruthless campaign, showing no mercy even to innocent victims, further confirming allegations of war crimes. The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) had long cautioned the international community about Hamas’ nature, and recent events serve as stark evidence. The brutal acts perpetrated by Hamas underscore the urgent need for global attention and action against the group’s actions, which inflict harm on both Israelis and Palestinians, fueling a longstanding conflict with severe humanitarian consequences.
KFAR AZA Village Massacre by Hamas Terrorist
KFAR AZA, Israel — Days after Hamas militants ambushed this kibbutz, Israeli soldiers walked through and clear raided homes where the bodies of residents remained in the ruins.
Houses across this village, surrounded by farms in southern Israel, just 3 miles from the border with Gaza, are nearly unrecognizable with windows and doors blown and rubble strewn across floors. Soldiers found the body of an elderly woman in a home on Tuesday, four days after Hamas launched its attack.
“You see the babies, the mothers, the fathers in their bedrooms and how the terrorists killed,” Israeli Maj. Gen. Itai Veruv told journalists allowed inside the kibbutz. “It’s not a war, it’s not a battlefield: It’s a massacre.” Kfar Aza was once home to more than 700 residents.
Now, the village lays abandoned — its residents evacuated, missing or killed.
But the echoes of Hamas’ brutality are still clearly visible: The gate to enter the kibbutz has been destroyed, cars demolished, and the exterior walls to homes are completely blackened from being set aflame.
Adva Adar’s 85-year-old grandmother, Yaffa Adar, was kidnapped from Kfar Aza. She told Sky News that she saw her grandmother being driven in a golf cart by militants, describing Yaffa as “very strong.”
“We’re shocked, it hurts in every inch of our bodies,” she said. “We’re very scared for her, she’s ill, and of course she doesn’t have her medicine with her.”
Gunmen went from home to home, breaking in to kidnap whomever they could and killing the rest. Bullet holes could be seen on the outside of charred homes and on interior walls.
Keren Flash, who survived the attack, called the experience “absolute hell.”
“One of the most beautiful places in the world, as far as I know, is completely destroyed,” Flash said.
