Horrifying footage shows gunmen on kibbutz hunting for Israelis

Kibbutz Be'eri, some 12 miles from Gaza, is still facing an 'active hostage situation'


Shocking footage has emerged showing Hamas terrorists armed with machine guns combing a kibbutz in southern Israel.

The clip, shot on Kibbutz Be'eri, some 12 miles from the Gaza border, shows at least 10 men entering residential buildings.

It comes amid reports that Hamas gunmen were holding hostages at the kibbutz dining hall.

"Many houses have been taken over, there are hostages, there are dead and wounded," Israel's Kan News public broadcaster quoted an official at Kibbutz Be'eri as saying.

Around 5.30 pm, 11 hours into Hamas's terror assault on Israel, the Israel Defense Forces reported exchanges of fire at 22 locations inside Israel.

According to the IDF spokesperson, 35 battalions are working to neutralize terrorists roaming Israel's streets.

Local media reported that nine Palestinian terrorists were neutralized near ​​Kibbutz Nirim, while Israeli fighter jets killed another four terrorists in the area of the Erez Crossing and Kibbutz Nir Oz. Additional terrorists were taken out in Kibbutz Sufa, Kfar Aza and Kerem Shalom.

Meanwhile, an airstrike intercepted two additional terrorists who attempted to cross the border fence near the Karni Crossing.

The IDF on Saturday night released footage of an airstrike on a terror squad in Kibbutz Be'eri.

Hamas killed at least 150 Israelis and wounded some 1,000 on Saturday as it launched a massive offensive from the Gaza Strip, including firing more than 3,000 rockets and sending dozens of terrorists to infiltrate the Jewish state.

Hamas claimed to be holding 53 Israelis hostage in Gaza.
