Israel, Netanyahu shows photos of children massacred in kibbutzim

Images of atrocities committed by Hamas shown and made public. This was done by Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu who showed Secretary of State Antony Blinken some photos (which we decided not to show at Sky TG24, ed) with babies killed and burned. The images were then published on the account “prime minister of Israel” of social X, for adult users only, with the warning “these are horrible photos of babies murdered and burned by Hamas monsters. Hamas is inhuman. Hamas is ISIS”. (WAR IN ISRAEL – THE LIVEBLOG)

“Real photos”

The release of the atrocious images comes after the Jerusalem Post wrote that it could “confirm, based on verified photos of the bodies, that reports of children burned and beheaded in the Hamas assault on Kfar Aza are correct.” Out of respect for the dead, Israelis generally do not release photos of the corpses of terrorism victims. This time Israel has chosen to do differently, as evidence of one of the most frightening massacres, which occurred in the Gaza Strip in the community of Kfar Aza. The news, however, had no official confirmation, although the authorities had generally spoken of atrocities against children, beheadings and burned bodies. Hamas had denied this, calling reports of children killed “lies and slander”.

“Beyond all imagination”

“The photos I have seen of children and infants massacred, soldiers beheaded, boys burned alive are beyond imagination. Almost incomprehensible”, commented US Secretary of State Antony Blinken. “They brought back memories of the violence of ISIS,” he added.
