The harrowing killings occurred on Saturday in an Israeli city near the Gaza Strip, leaving journalists on the ground visibly distraught.
“It’s hard to even explain exactly just the mass casualties that happened right here,” i24 News correspondent Nicole Zedek reported, as detailed by the New York Post. Zedek was broadcasting live, where she showcased visibly disturbed officers who surveyed the aftermath of the horrifying attack.
“Babies with their heads cut off, that’s what [the soldiers] said. Gunned down. Families gunned down, completely gunned down in their beds,” Zedek said. Describing the scene as “sheen horror,” she added, “This is nothing that anyone would have even imagined.”

Gen. Itai Veruv, an Israeli official who heads the IDF’s Depth Command, also spoke to reporters about the heartbreaking scene he witnessed.
“It’s not a war,” Veruv said. “It’s not a battlefield. You see the babies, the mothers, the fathers in their bedrooms, in their protection rooms, and how the terrorists kill them. It’s not a war. … It’s a massacre.”

CNN confirmed the disturbing reports, with journalist Nic Robertson stating, “There were so many murdered members of this Kibbutz. Men, women, children, hands bound, shot, executed, heads cut.”
Nic Robertson recalls being brought to Kfar Aza to witness the brutality Hamas brought on the community. He describes it as “ISIS-style executions” where they were “cutting the heads off of people” including babies and killing their pets.

French journalist Margot Haddad echoed the tragic reporting. “Infants and children under 2 years old were beheaded by Hamas in the Kibbutz of Kfar Aza,” she said in a Franch-language post on Twitter. “It is a horror, a massacre,” she said in a French-language post that was translated by Headline USA. “For those asking for the source. They are multiple: Israeli army, internal intelligence service and atrocious images which reached me and which I was able to cross-check.”
The Israeli armed forces faced immense difficulties in removing the casualties, as many of the houses were covered with grenades and potential booby traps, according to Nicole Zedek’s report.
Ça y est l’information est sortie. C’est si macabre que personne ne voulait la donner avant d’avoir eu confirmation à 100%.
