A Heartbreaking Tragedy Gets Worse


(GoRealNewsNow.com) – After thinking his life could not get any worse, one of the four Israeli hostages rescued from Gaza faced a heartbreaking tragedy when he found out his father died just hours before he came home.

“My brother died of grief and didn’t get to see his son return. The night before Almog’s return, my brother’s heart stopped,” Almog Meir’s aunt Dina Jan said.

“We are very happy about Almog’s return, but the brain is unable to absorb that this is the end. We are broken,” she added.

Almog’s father, Yossi, had been “glued to the television” since October, “clinging to every piece of information” about his son, who Hamas captured from the Nova music festival.

Subsequently, Dina received a call notifying her that Almog was rescued by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) in a major military operation in central Gaza. “I was so happy I didn’t know what to do,” she expressed.

However, officers had not been able to reach Yossi, so Dina went to his house to tell him the good news. When she arrived, she found him in the living room, dead. Yossi was 57.

Dina also emphasized how Almog’s father cared so much for his son, and he wanted to know what was happening to him and what he was going through.

Almog’s mother, Orit Meir, said she “couldn’t stop hugging him” when they reunited. “Tomorrow is my birthday, so I got my present,” she added.

Besides rescuing Almog, the IDF also rescued Noa Argamani, Andrey Kozlov, and Shlomi Ziv from Nuseirat. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised the military’s “heroic operation,” calling it “complex and dangerous.”

“Our heroic warriors charged as one man into the fire, they eliminated the terrorists and freed the hostages,” he said.

Additionally, anti-Israel foreign entities began to criticize the IDF’s operation just hours after the hostages were rescued.

For instance, Iranian foreign ministry spokesperson Nasser Kanaani said the country “strongly condemned the heinous crimes,” while Lebanon’s foreign ministry condemned the “massacre committed by Israel in the Nuseirat camp.”

In turn, Egypt’s foreign ministry condemned “in the strongest terms the Israeli attacks on Nuseirat Camp.”
