Currently there are some 125 hostages still in Gaza, of whom 43 have been pronounced dead based on IDF intelligence reports.

The decision to pronounce the four hostages dead was based on intelligence and was confirmed by a Ministry of Health expert committee, in coordination with the Ministry of Religious Services and the Chief Rabbi of Israel.

The circumstances of their death in Hamas captivity are still under examination by all the relevant officials. The four were apparently being held together in the Khan Younis region. The IDF is still studying the intelligence information regarding their deaths and estimates that they were killed a few months ago, possibly from IDF fire during its Khan Younis offensive.

Amiram Cooper, 84, was one of the founders of Kibbutz Nirim. Amiram’s wife, Nurit, was kidnapped along with him and was released on October 23 along with Yocheved Lifshitz.

Yoram Metzger, 80, was kidnapped along with his wife, Tamar (Tami) Metzger, who was released in the prisoner exchanges

Haim Perry, 79, was an entrepreneur and peace activist. His wife, Osnat, said that he saved her life during the massacre.

Nadav Popplewell, 51, was kidnapped together with his mother, Channah Peri, 79. Channah was released on November 24 as part of the temporary hostage and ceasefire deal. Nadav’s brother Roi was murdered on October 7. Less than a month ago a clip of Nadav, who appeared with facial injuries, was broadcast by Hamas in an attempt to exert psychological pressure on Israel.

An Israel that is even a fraction as bad as the world says they are would execute “Palestinian” terrorists for every dead hostage.
