New footage shows the moment Hamas hostage Noa Argamani was taken into Gaza with her head covered in a black bag by terrorists.

Argamani can be heard wailing as she is held down on a motorcycle by a jeering member of Hamas who sat on her shoulders, crushing the 26-year-old and pushing her head down with a black bag.

She is surrounded by at least ten heavily armed men wearing bullet vests and balaclavas who can be heard shouting at her in the clip, which was taken over six months ago and was released today by The Daily Mail. Most of the men are dressed in civilian clothing.

Argamani was seized from Nova festival on October 7 by Hamas. A video of the Ben Gurion University student with her arms outstretched as she screamed, “don’t kill me”, was widely shared on the day of the attack.

According to the Mail, the newly released video from October 7 is not being shown to Argamani’s mother, who is dying from stage 4 brain cancer.

In March, the terminally ill mother begged President Joe Biden to help bring her daughter home for one last hug: “I am asking you, President Joe Biden, I don’t have a lot of time left in this world. It may be my last wish. I’m really begging you. Please help me.”

“My time is counted between life and death. I want to see her one more time. Talk to her one more time,” the Chinese-Israeli mother said.

“My heart really hurts. On the one hand it is physical, it’s not working the way it should. On the other hand because my daughter is a hostage,” the ailing mother said.

Hamas released a series of propaganda videos in January which showed three Israeli hostages — Noa Argamani, Yossi Sharabi and Itai Savirsky. The final video depicted Argamani saying that her fellow captives, 53-year-old Yossi Sharabi and 38-year-old Itai Svirsky, had been killed in an airstrike in Gaza, before showing what appeared to be the men's bodies.
