Hamas terrorists ‘decapitated babies in kibbutz massacre’: IDF soldiers reveal horrific scenes of carnage they discovered at site where dozens were massacred
Hamas terrorists beheaded babies and shot entire families in their homes on a small kibbutz in Israel, horrified Israeli soldiers have revealed.
Some 70 Hamas terrorists, armed with rifles and grenades, stormed the usually quiet Kibbutz Kfar Aza in southern Israel, killing everyone in sight – men, women and children.
The bullet-riddled bodies of Israeli residents now lay within the kibbutz compound, among burned houses, scattered furniture and burned cars. Today, solemn Israeli soldiers went from house to house to take away the dozens of people massacred there.
They described seeing the bodies of babies next to their beds, their heads cut off, a sign of the depraved acts committed by the terrorists since they attacked Israel on Saturday.
Israeli soldiers were seen comforting themselves after the horrors they witnessed, including the bodies of entire families gunned down in their beds.
