In a recent development, Hamas has released a video featuring an Israeli woman, 21-year-old Miya Schem, who was reportedly taken hostage during the October 7 attacks. These attacks resulted in the tragic loss of over 1,300 lives and triggered the conflict in Gaza, with around 200 individuals reportedly being held hostage during the incidents.

The video, released by Hamas’ military wing, the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, shows Miya Schem with her arm wrapped in bandages, indicating she had suffered an injury. In her statement, she identified herself as being from Sderot, a small Israeli city near the Gaza border. She explained that she was attending the Supernova Sukkot Music Festival on Kibbutz Re’im when Hamas operatives attacked the event. Tragically, at least 260 people at the music festival lost their lives, and Miya, along with others, was taken hostage. As of this writing, 13 Americans remain unaccounted for, and it is believed that at least some of them are being held hostage by the terrorist organization.
