New details were revealed this evening (Monday) by political commentator Amit Segal of the rescue of PVT. Ori Megidish last week after she had been kidnapped by Hamas terrorists on October 7.

According to the report, the ground incursions into Gaza to combat the Hamas terrorist organization made it easier to camouflage the force that was sent to rescue Megidish.

Megidish was held in the Al-Shati refugee camp, not far from the Shifa hospital where the Hamas terrorist organization has made its headquarters.

She was rescued from a residential apartment and not from a tunnel. During the rescue operation, two terrorists were eliminated.

Megidish, a 19-year-old woman who served as an observer, was freed from Hamas captivity last week.

Samdar, Megidish's aunt, said following the rescue of her niece: "Thank you to the creator of the world, thank you to our soldiers, thank you that she is healthy and whole, thank you very much to all the people of Israel, we are very excited."

IDF spokesman Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus said that since her rescue, Megidish "has provided intelligence that we will be able to use in the future for future operations."
