Abu Obeida: Three captives die of wounds sustained in Israeli airstrikes

Tuesday 13-February-2024


Three Israeli captives died of wounds from Israeli airstrikes in the Gaza Strip, Abu Obeida, the spokesman of the Al-Qassam Brigades of Hamas, announced on Monday.

On Sunday, AL-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, said two captives were killed and eight others injured in Israeli airstrikes in the last three days.

“Three injured captives succumbed to their wounds from barbaric Israeli strikes on Gaza,” the spokesman said in a terse statement on Telegram.

He added that he will release photos and names of the captives “when the fate of the other injured captives becomes clear.”

Hamas is believed to be holding more than 130 Israeli captives following its 7 October cross-border attack into Israel.

Israel has since pounded the Gaza Strip, killing at least 28,340 people and injuring 67,984 others. The Israeli onslaught has left 85% of Gaza’s population internally displaced amid acute shortages of food, clean water and medicine, while 60% of the enclave’s infrastructure was damaged or destroyed, according to the UN.
