ISRAEL (VINnews) — A Thai hostage who was released by Hamas told Israel’s Channel 12 that the Jewish hostages with him were beaten with electric cables, and that all the hostages were denied adequate food.

Channel 12 also quoted the Thai hostage as saying that Jewish hostages were kept in worse conditions than others.

As reported by the Times of Israel:

“He says there was little to eat for the hostages — a pita a day, sometimes a tin of tuna to share between four, and sometimes a piece of cheese. Held for more than seven weeks, he says they were allowed to shower once.

“We were with Israelis, and they were guarded all the time,” he is quoted saying. “The Jews who were held with me were treated very harshly, sometimes they were beaten with electric cables.”

In addition, it has been reported that Hamas tortured children by forcing them at gunpoint to watch films of atrocities against Israeli civilians during the attack. It also kept some children alone for weeks, and denied hostages sufficient food, water, and sunlight.

Many hostages lost weight, and not unexpectedly, many of the children have shown signs of psychological trauma.

The Red Cross has not been allowed to visit the hostages, nor has it transferred medicines and other needed items to them. In fact, there is no evidence that the Red Cross, which has immense leverage, has made any serious effort to pressure Hamas to allow them in.

This news doesn’t surprise me, at all; I was skeptical of the initial reports that “the Israeli hostages were treated humanely”. This reminds me of what occurred during the Yom Kippur War, to IDF soldiers who were taken prisoner by the Syrians. They were tortured and treated horribly. On the other hand, the Syrians soldier, especially the wounded ones, who were captured by the Israelis, were given excellent medical care in hospitals. When the Syrians were repatriated to Syria, in a prisoner exchange, they were warned by Syrian officials, that they would face severe consequences, if they dared to reveal to anyone, the excellent treatment they received while POW’s in Israel.

The Red Nazi Cross has ALWAYS been an anti Semitic group. PLEASE NEVER donate money to them. They are just plain dirt bags!
