Israeli officials on Monday screened a 43-minute montage of video shot by Hamas militants during their attack on October 7 to 200 journalists in order to address a growing “Holocaust denial-like phenomenon.”
The recently revealed GoPro film shot by Hamas fighters depicts graphic incidents from the terror group’s October 7 slaughter on Israel.
These include instances when terrorists beheaded one victim with a spade and killed a father with a grenade in front of his two sons.
The video, shown to hundreds of foreign journalists on Monday during a screening in Tel Aviv, is one of many clips assembled by Israeli forces that lead the gravity and breadth of Hamas’ attack on Israel that day.
According to Israeli officials, these clips range from dashboard camera footage to cell phone videos to security recordings.
Journalists Describe Graphic Hamas Video of Horrific Events
Several journalists who witnessed the graphic video shared their observations on X, including BBC Middle East correspondent Jotam Confino, who claimed that officials ordered them not to film the video out of respect for the victims’ families.
According to Confino, one video showed a terrorist “screaming ‘Allahu Akbar’ as he desperately tries to behead a dead man with a shovel.”
When a Hamas member throws a hand grenade through a shelter door, another video shows a father and his two young sons running for their lives in their underwear into what seems to be a bomb shelter, Confino wrote.
According to Confino, the father died, and the two kids suffered severe injuries.
Fox could not air the video on a Monday program because it’s too horrible.
Confino and British journalist David Patrikarakos both reported seeing pictures of babies and kids who had been burned.
One youngster was burned beyond recognition, according to Confino, while Patrikarakos claimed the newborns were “so small you could cradle them in the crook of your arm.”
The journalists also detailed how other tapes and films appeared to show the terrorists boasting and celebrating the atrocities.
Even a phone call between one of the assailants and his parents was made public by the IDF, in which he boasted of having killed ten people and told them to be proud of their son because he was a hero.
Other videos show Israelis being shot at in their cars as they drive past Hamas fighters.
Dash-cam video captures the instant bullets hit the windshield of one of the cars, which continues to move as the driver is shot before coming to a stop on the side of the road, in a recording made available by the IDF and posted by Patrikarakos.
The attackers shot at the passing automobile at close range, and the driver covered their head as they ducked to dodge the flying bullets, according to GoPro footage captured by one of the militants.
The combatants surround the car as it stops, and the driver and passenger can be seen lying still inside.
Soon after the surprise attack on October 7, rumors about the horrific specifics of the incident swiftly emerged, including unconfirmed claims that newborns were beheaded during the attack at the Kfar Aza kibbutz, which left 40 babies among the dead.
In total, more than 1,400 people have died in Israel; the majority of them were innocent bystanders who perished in the initial murders.
According to the health ministry in Gaza, more than 2,000 children were among the more than 5,000 individuals who have died.
