Dramatic new footage was released this evening (Monday) showing the moment IDF soldiers found Almog Meir Jan (21), Andrey Kozlov (27), and Shlomi Ziv (40), three of the hostages who were rescued on Saturday.

In the footage, the soldiers can be seen entering the apartment building in Nuseirat where the hostages were held after engaging in a firefight with Hamas terrorists while approaching the building.

The soldiers found the hostages, sitting in a corner while terrorists outside continued to shoot at them.

The rescue force came under heavy fire as they attempted to get the freed hostages to the extraction point. Despite this, they succeeded in getting the hostages to the helicopter that flew them out of Gaza.
