A single mother who pleaded with Benjamin Netanyahu to “free all of us” in a Hamas hostage video was among those released by the terror group on Friday.
Danielle Aloni, 44, was kidnapped with her five-year-old daughter Emelia Aloni when she was visiting her twin sister in Kibbutz Nir Oz on 7 October.
While they had initially been hiding in the bomb shelter, when the terrorists set fire to her sister’s home they were forced to flee.
Ms Aloni’s sister Sharon Cunio, her husband David and their twin daughters, Emma and Julia, aged three, were also snatched by the terror group.
Ms Aloni’s family had not had any confirmation they were alive until Hamas shared a hostage video in which she was seen sitting on plastic chairs with two other hostages.
In the 76-clip, she addressed Mr Netanyahu directly and pleaded for an exchange with Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli jails.
During the video, for which she was likely being instructed on what to say, she said: “Let their citizens go, let their prisoners go. Free us. Free all of us. Let us return to our families now.”
At the end she screamed “now” several times.
