85-year-old Yosheved Lifsitz, one of the hostages released by Hamas on Monday, told from the Israeli hospital where she was taken and is being treated how Hamas men kidnapped her on the day of the attack on Kibbutz Nir Oz on October 7.
As she said speaking to Israeli media, they immobilized her and put her on the back of a motorcycle. They then moved on to Gaza.
“They loaded me onto a motorcycle sideways so I wouldn’t fall, with one terrorist holding me from the front and the other from behind. They crossed the border fence into the Gaza Strip and initially detained me in the town of Abeshan, which is near Beeri. After that, I don’t know where they took me,” said the 85-year-old woman.
She and 79-year-old Nurit Cooper were released yesterday, Monday by Hamas for “humanitarian and medical reasons”.
Hamas released the moment of the release of the two women with the terrorist organization’s gunmen handing them over, their faces covered.
The two women arrived early on Tuesday at a hospital in Tel Aviv.
