The Hostage Situation In the Gaza Strip

From a New York Times story by David Leonhardt and Lauren Jackson headlined “Hamas’s Hostages”:

Shiri Bibas, a young mother, is holding her two redheaded sons — Ariel, who’s 4, and Kfir, 9 months — as armed militants surround them in an online video.

In a separate video, Doron Asher Katz, who’s 34, is being blindfolded in the back of a pickup truck. Next to her are her mother Efrat Katz, 67, and her daughters, Raz, 5, and Aviv, 3.

Twelve-year-old Erez Kalderon appears in yet another video, being pushed down a path by Palestinian militia members.
