Bodies of three more hostages recovered from Gaza, says IDF

Bodies of three hostages, who were taken away by Hamas terrorists, have been recovered by Israeli Defense Forces from Jabalya city in northern Gaza.

They were identified as Hanan Yablonka, Michel Nisenbaum, and Orion Hernandez.

IDF said they were killed during the October 7 Massacre and were abducted to Gaza by Hamas terrorists.

"Their bodies were rescued overnight during a joint IDF and ISA operation in Jabaliya, and brought back to Israel," the IDF said in a statement.

IDF further said: "We will continue operating to bring all of our hostages back home."

Israel launched its attack on Gaza after Hamas targeted its territory on October 7.

During the October 7 massacre, 1200 people were killed.

The Hamas group had abducted 250 people.

According to reports, at least 141 people are still in the captivity of Hamas.

Living conditions in Gaza continue to deteriorate, with reports of an increase in diarrhoea and suspected cases of Hepatitis A, UN humanitarians warned on Thursday.

The UN agency assisting Palestine refugees (UNRWA) is continuing to provide healthcare as best it can but overcrowded shelters and limited sanitation services, coupled with forced displacement, are posing severe health risks, the agency said in a post on X.

Furthermore, safe water is unaffordable for many, and people are resorting to burning trash to cook with, the UN Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) added.

Also on Thursday, a UN independent human rights expert urged the Government of Israel to investigate multiple allegations of torture and other degrading treatment against detained Palestinians since 7 October last year.

Alice Jill Edwards, Special Rapporteur on torture emphasized that anyone deprived of their liberty must always be treated humanely.

“They must be provided with all protections required under international human rights and humanitarian law, whatever the circumstances of their detention,” she said in a news release.

The Human Rights Council-appointed expert said she has received allegations of individuals being beaten, kept in cells blindfolded and handcuffed for excessive periods, deprived of sleep, and threatened with physical and sexual violence.

Other reports suggest prisoners have been insulted and exposed to acts of humiliation, such as being photographed and filmed in degrading poses, while prolonged use of zip-tie handcuffs has reportedly caused friction injuries and wounds.
