In a just-released video, an Israeli woman currently held in Gaza accused Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of failing to rescue the captives.

The Al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of the Palestinian Resistance movement Hamas, released a video on Monday in which three Israeli women, who are currently held in Gaza, angrily appeal to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to release them “right now.” 

According to the Israeli newspaper The Jerusalem Post, the women in the video accused the prime minister of failing to prevent the attack on October 7 and now failing to rescue the prisoners and captives by agreeing to a ceasefire. 

In the video, only one of the women spoke, in Hebrew. The Jerusalem Post quoted her as saying: 

“Hello, Bibi Netanyahu.

“We have been in Hamas captivity for 23 days. 

“Yesterday, there was a press conference with the families of the hostages. 

“We know that there was supposed to be a ceasefire. 

“You were supposed to release all of us. 

“You made a commitment to release all of us.”

The Jerusalem Post reported that the woman accused Netanyahu of “political and national neglect” and of “screwing up” on October 7.

“No military was there. Nobody came. Nobody heard us,” the woman said, according to the Israeli newspaper. 

“We are innocent citizens. Citizens who pay taxes to the State of Israel.

“You want to kill us all.

“You want to kill us all using the IDF (Israeli army).

“It isn’t enough that Israeli citizens were killed.

“Let us go now… Let us return to our families now!”

Netanyahu reportedly responded by saying that “this is a cruel psychological manipulation by Hamas and ISIS,” and that the government is “doing everything to bring all the captives and missing individuals back home.”
