Israel at War: Recounting the October 7th Massacre

As the Israel-Hamas war leaves behind its first month, and the effective missile defense positioned by the Israel Air Force manages to minimize civilian casualties within Israel’s borders, world attention is disproportionately focused on the plight of Palestinians caught in the crossfire in Gaza. It is convenient for outsiders to put aside the horrendous massacre and mass abduction which occurred on October 7. But they must not be filed away, as there are hundreds of hostages of all ages being cruelly held by Hamas and others in Gaza, and victims of the Hamas attack on that savage Sabbath are in the slow process of recovering from their physical and mental wounds.

With us to highlight this dimension of the war are (a hostage’s relative) and a survivor. Michal Rahav – Kibbutz Nirim residence, Survivor of Hamas Terror attack, Lea Yanai Mor - Sister of Moran Yanai, Israeli Hostage in Gaza, Leon Yanai - Brother of Moran Yanai, Israeli Hostage in Gaza, Chen Avigdori – Husband of Sharon and father of Noam, Israeli Hostages in Gaza, Analyst Mr. Amir Oren – TV7 Editors at Large. Host Jonathan Hessen.
