(USNewsMag.com) – The dramatic February 11th rescue of two Israeli hostages, who had been held captive in Gaza since being taken from Kibbutz Nir Yitzhak during the October 7th attack by Hamas, was captured on video.

Video shows Israeli forces entering a heavily guarded apartment building in Rafah, a densely packed town in the Gaza Strip, and rescuing two men who had been held hostage for four months. The video details how Israeli forces used airstrikes to distract the Hamas terrorists during the rescue operation. Israeli military spokesman Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari said Hamas militants were guarding the hostages, adding that the hostages had to be shielded by the rescue team from the fighting that erupted during the rescue. Hagari said the rescue, based on precise intelligence, had been planned for some time. Sixty-seven Palestinians were killed by the airstrikes, according to the Gaza Health Ministry.

Argentinian-Israeli dual citizens and brothers-in-law Fernando Simon Marman, 60, and Louis Har, 70, were seen in the video hugging their relatives and wiping away tears at the Sheba Tel Hashomer Medical Center following the rescue operation. Both men are in good condition, according to the Israel Defense Forces. Some of their relatives, including Har’s partner and Marman’s sister, Clara Marman, their niece Mia Leimberg, and their other sister Gabriela Leimberg were among the 100 hostages released by Hamas terrorists during a cease-fire in November.

Approximately 100 hostages are thought to be being held captive by Hamas in Gaza, along with the remains of about 30 hostages who were killed on Oct. 7 or died while in captivity. There were at least 250 people who were taken hostage during the Oct. 7 attack by Hamas, in which 1,200 people were killed.

Since the Oct. 7 attack, over 28,000 Palestinians have been killed in the conflict, according to Gaza’s Health Ministry. Israel claims 10,000 Hamas fighters have been killed since the war began.
