Israel military accidentally kills three of its citizens

We know that the war between Israel and Gaza is going on right now and it is also noted that the hostages have been taken by both the sides. In a stunning incident, Israel’s military has acknowledged that they killed three Israeli hostages “accidentally”. The official statement from Israel’s military states that “three hostages were killed during combat with militants in Gaza and expressed its condolences to the families while saying there would be “full transparency” in the investigation into the incident.” The statement adds that its armed forces “identified three Israeli hostages as a threat”. “As a result, the troops fired toward them and they were killed.” The military named the dead hostages as Yotam Haim who was kidnapped from Kibbutz Kfar, and Samer Talalka, who was abducted from Kibbutz Nir Am, and Alon Shamriz who was taken from Kibbutz Kfar Aza. All were abducted by Hamas on Oct. 7, it added in the statement.

The Hostages and Missing Persons Families Forum, which represents the families of hostages, expressed its condolences and confirmed the names of the three hostages. It said, “Yotam was a gifted musician and dedicated metal music fan who idolized the band Megadeth” and “Samer was an avid motorcyclist who loved to ride around the countryside and spend time with friends.” The forum said, “Alon’s family and friends described him as a lover of life and a dedicated basketball fan”. We know that Israel has engaged in intense battles with Hamas militants, who often wear casual civilian clothing recently and it seems like that was the major cause of confusion in this incident.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a statement, “Together with the entire people of Israel, I bow my head in deep sorrow and mourn the death of three of our dear sons who were kidnapped”. “My heart goes out to the grieving families in their difficult time.” After the reports of this incident came out, Israeli citizens started protesting in front of central military base in Tel Aviv with signs reading “we demand a deal now!” and “not going to sleep – protesting all night” possibly demanding a ceasefire deal.
