Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) claimed on Wednesday that some hostages it had taken on October 7 have attempted suicide after being treated in a manner similar to how Israel treats Arab prisoners.

“Some enemy prisoners have attempted suicide as a result of the extreme frustration they are feeling due to their government’s neglect of their cause,” PIJ spokesperson Abu Hamza said on Telegram. “We will keep treating Israeli hostages the same way Israel treats our prisoners.”

Although PIJ did not specify what “measures” it had taken, it’s safe to assume that the hostages have not been treated as how the Jewish State treats their prisoners.

According to Amnesty International, Hamas has executed prisoners in front of crowds that included children. The terror group is known to physically torture prisoners with extreme brutality, including beatings, putting out cigarettes on prisoners’ flesh, cutting, strangling, and forcing people into unnatural positions for extended periods of time.

In stark contrast, Israel treats even its dangerous criminals with the highest moral standards afforded by democracy, such as Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar. Prior to being released as part of the 2011 Gilad Shalit deal, Sinwar developed a life-threatening brain tumor. Israel ultimately saved Sinwar’s life even though it ended up costing them dearly on Oct. 7.

Meanwhile, Israel is reviewing the latest Hamas response to a US ceasefire proposal.

“The hostage deal mediators have conveyed to the negotiating team Hamas’s remarks on the outline of the hostage deal. Israel is evaluating the remarks and will relay its reply to the mediators,” the Mossad announced on Wednesday night.

Reports suggest the primary sticking point remains Hamas’ ludicrous demand for a permanent end to the war before any hostages, dead or alive, are given back.
