A chilling Hamas propaganda video featuring hostage Daniella Gilboa was cleared for release on Tuesday.

“I do not need any food, any money, any clothes, nothing – only that you bring us back home alive,” Daniella says.

“I am under barrage and fire 24 hours a day, and I am very afraid for my life. Why do I need to feel that I was abandoned and tossed out? Get hold of yourselves, dear government, and start doing your job properly. Bring us home alive.

“And you, my family – I really miss you and love you. Mom, Dad, Nuni, Ro’iko. I ask that you be strong and do everything that you can to bring me home, so long as I am still alive.”

Daniella, a member of the 414th Combat Intelligence Collection Unit, fell victim to Hamas’ October 7 attack on the Nahal Oz IDF Base. The promising musician, who had graduated with distinction from high school, was serving as an observation soldier when she was taken hostage.

In an interview with Keshet 12, Daniella’s mother acknowledged that although the footage is six months old, she had been notified by the IDF in May that her 19-year-old daughter is probably alive.

“So much time has passed since then, this is from six months ago, from the 107th day, but I can see the suffering my daughter is going through. She seems very assertive and determined, but she’s saying these things as a game. I recognize this ability in her, to know how to perfectly say the things that they told her to say,” she said.

“We do not know if this is a testimony or what it really is. The army is not sharing with us, they simply tell us very laconically that there is a ‘sign of life,’ and that’s it. We don’t know anything else.”

    Major failure on the part of the state of Israel. They should have finished the war within three months. Now they have endangered the world Jewish population, dragging it out.

    You can’t blow up an ideology. You have to win hearts and minds through the gospel of Jesus Christ.
