Ori Megidish, 19, was on guard duty at the ultra-militarized border between Israel and the Gaza Strip when she was captured by Hamas fighters on October 7.

An Israeli soldier, freed by the Hamas army at the end of October, rejoiced on Monday, November 27, at the release of the hostages by the Palestinian Islamist movement, the first public speech since the mysterious operation which freed her from captivity.

Ori Megidish, 19, was on guard duty at the ultra-militarized border between Israel and the Gaza Strip when she was captured by Hamas fighters on October 7. The army confirmed her rescue three weeks later, without details of her captivity or the operation to free her.

In a video filmed at her home and published on her Tiktok account, Ori Megidish declares “to go well ” and be ” happy to see the moving images of the hostages reunited with their families“. “ I hope that all the families who are still waiting (…) will be reunited and can rejoice like me“.

“Pick up the pieces before we continue to fight”

On Sunday, 14 new Israeli hostages returned to Israel, on the third day of a truce with Hamas providing for the release of 50 hostages over four days, compared to that of 150 Palestinians detained by Israel.

“ They are in our arms. They are well, healthy and smiling“, said Inbar Goldstein after the release of his sister-in-law, Chen Goldstein Almog, 48, released with three of her four children Agam, 17, Gal, 11, and Tal, 8. On October 7, Hamas fighters assassinated their father. and his eldest daughter Yam, 19, before taking the others to the Gaza Strip. »Now we take a moment to catch our breath, smile again, pick up the pieces before we continue to fight.» until the last hostage «come back safe and sound“Ms. Goldstein said in a statement released by the Hostage Families Forum.

According to Israeli authorities, more than 1,200 people, mostly civilians, were killed and around 240 taken to Gaza by Hamas on October 7. In retaliation, Israel promised to annihilate Hamas, by relentlessly bombing the Gaza Strip and then launching a ground offensive. According to the Hamas government, nearly 15,000 people were killed during these operations. On the last day of the truce, Monday, negotiations continued to extend it and continue the releases. But in the family of Elma Avraham, 84, released on Sunday, the anguish remains. The octogenarian was taken to hospital by helicopter in a “critical state» lack of care in captivity. Doctors say they still fear for his life.
