[4:42 PM, 4/24/2024] Shalom Menora: IDF: IDF Spokesperson, Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari:

”This is an urgent call for action. We will leave no stone unturned in our efforts to find our hostages”

Attached is a video announcement of the IDF Spokesperson, Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari:

Attached is the full transcript of the video announcement:
Hamas just published a video of 23-year-old, Hersh Goldberg-Polin,
an American-Israeli boy, who was celebrating with his friends at the Nova Music Festival, when he was violently and brutally attacked
and kidnapped by Hamas on October 7.

Hersh has been held by Hamas in Gaza for over 200 days.

133 hostages are still being held by Hamas in Gaza —
for over 200 days, in inhumane conditions.

Until Hamas releases our hostages
the IDF will continue to pursue Hamas everywhere in Gaza.

This is an urgent call for action. We will leave no stone unturned in our efforts to find our hostages.

This psychological terror video
is not only a reminder of what Hamas did on October 7th,
It is a reminder of how sick this terror group is, terrorizing the hostages and their families too.

To Hersh’s parents Rachel
and Jon: Our hearts are with you.

We will continue doing everything in our power to bring your son Hersh
and all our hostages back home.

Your strength continues to inspire us as we fulfill this critical mission.

A Message from Shalom
