Israel Confirms Beheaded Babies: 'No Words'

By    |   Wednesday, 11 October 2023 12:20 PM EDT

Israel Defense Forces and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's office confirmed reports of 40 children being slaughtered, some by beheading, by Hamas terrorists in Saturday's terrorist attack in Israel.

Pressed for evidence, IDF said to take its word for it and the word of its soldiers, because any further proof would be "disrespectful for the dead," Major Nir Dinar told Business Insider.

The pressing for evidence of the Israel claim, which was repeated by President Joe Biden in his Tuesday address, was followed by photos shared on social media to provide more context.

"Only a genocidal terrorist organization is capable of such horrors," IDF posted on X Wednesday, sharing the photo of a toddler's bed covered in blood.

The official Israeli PM account, added: "No words."

That post followed another that confirmed the total of the babies slaughtered and reported by multiple outlets, including CNN.

"Infants and toddlers can't read the text in this video, but their parents can: 40 babies were murdered by Hamas terrorists," Wednesday's post read. "We know you'd do everything you could to keep your children safe. That's what we plan on doing."

Israel is planning a massive strike on Gaza to hunt down Hamas, former Israeli Ambassador to the U.N. Danny Danon told Newsmax on Wednesday, and search for what is a reported to be 150 hostages.

"We've never seen such savagery in the history of the state," Netanyahu said Tuesday, after Biden mentioned the beheadings of babies in his address to the U.S. after speaking with the Israeli prime minister for the third time since Saturday's terrorist attacks. "They're even worse than ISIS and we need to treat them as such."

Biden called out Hamas' "sheer evil" in his address, but did not mention reports of Iran's alleged involvement and support for Hamas' long-planned attacks. Biden did not take questions Tuesday.

"You see the babies, the mothers, the fathers in their bedrooms and how the terrorists killed," Maj. Gen. Itai Veruv, a 39-year veteran of the Israeli army who led forces that reclaimed the Kfar Azza village from terrorist militants, said Tuesday as he stood amid the wreckage. "It's not a battlefield. It's a massacre."

Information from Reuters was used in this report.
