A British-Israeli baby that was kidnapped by Hamas when the terrorists invaded Israel is still missing.
6-month-old Ariel was grabbed and taken hostage along with his 3-year-old brother and 30-year-old mom Shiri Silberman-Bibas over the weekend when militants from Gaza crossed the border and invaded Israeli settlements.
In a shocking video that has been circulating the social media, the infant can be seen clinging onto his mother as the militants dragged the family from the home and loaded them in the back of a vehicle.
According to the reports, Shiri and her husband, Yarden, rushed to their safe room when they heard Hamas forcing their way into their home.
“I love you all,” the man wrote in his final message to his relatives before the invaders got inside their house.
Along with Yarden, Shiri, and their kids, Hamas also kidnapped Shiri’s mother, Margit, and father, Yosi. The entire family has not been heard from since their abduction.
On Thursday afternoon, relatives of British-Israeli hostages held a conference during which the atrocities committed over the weekend were described in graphic detail.
Victims Noam Sagi and Sharon Lifschitz spoke out and revealed how Hamas assaulted females over their friends’ bodies while carrying out the “second Holocaust.”
“On Saturday morning, the Kibbutz where I was born and grew up, woke up to a massacre – to a second Holocaust. Mostly young kids and old elderly people. They burned the place to the ground, shot the dogs. Nothing left,” Noam said.
“People who survived the Holocaust found themselves facing another one. One of the hostages was on the Kindertransport.”
Sharon added: “They have taken so much from our community. These are our children, our parents. My mum was taken out, disconnected from her oxygen in order to be loaded onto a motorbike… You have to be a special sort of person to take an 85-year-old out of her bed don’t you?
“I have many friends, many Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus. I don’t care, let’s come together, bring these children home. My father would say, I’m 83, I’ve had a great life, don’t bother with me, bother with my neighbors’ children, babies. I ask you to bother with them too.
“My father spent his life working for peace. I am his daughter. I ask for peace. We now need to act together to fight that hatred with love. They are not part of this war.”
Our thoughts remain with the victims of the war during this challenging time.
