In one of the blood-curdling details from the Hamas attack on Israel, at least 40 babies were massacred by the terror group, Israel-based i24 News reported on Tuesday.
This came after several soldiers were called up for reserve service, and had arrived already expecting the worst, but the scenes were beyond imagination.
Some soldiers say they found babies with their heads cut off, some were burnt, entire families gunned down in their beds. About 40 babies and young children have been taken out on gurneys so far, i24 News reported.
The IDF also took international journalists to Kfar Azza, a kibbutz close to the border where around 70 residents were slaughtered during the devastating attack by Hamas terrorists.
“It’s not a war, it’s not a battlefield, it’s a massacre,” IDF Major General Itai Veruv said.
“You see the babies, their mothers and their fathers, in their bedrooms, and in their protected rooms, and how the terrorists killed them — it’s not a war,” Times of Israel quoted Veruv as saying.
He added, “It’s something that I never saw in my life…We used to imagine our grandmothers and grandfathers during the pogroms in Europe. It’s not something that we have seen in recent history”.
