Israel Releases Footage of Father and Son Confessing to Oct. 7 Kibbutz Rapes

A Palestinian father and son have confessed to murdering, abducting, and raping Israeli civilians in a Jewish community near Gaza during the October 7 massacre in southern Israel.

In video footage obtained by The Daily Mail, Jamal Hussein Ahmad Radi and his son Abdallah can be seen confirming their actions to Shin Bet interrogators after their March capture by IDF forces.

The elder Radi, a member of the Hamas Security Service, coldly described to the interviewer how he, his son, and other terrorists committed horrific atrocities when they entered the Nir Oz kibbutz.

“In each house where we found someone, we either killed them or kidnapped them,” the 47-year-old stated before adding that in “the first house I found a woman and her husband, and we hit them with fire and killed them… they were in their late 40s.”

Radi would later reveal that while confronting a terrified resident in another home, “I did what I did; I raped her,” further recalling that “I threatened her with my gun to take her clothes off; I remember she was wearing jean shorts; that’s about it.”

Radi’s son, Abdallah, described the situation in more detail, disclosing that when his father had finished, he and his cousin similarly violated the victim.

Abdallah would also admit to raping a second woman and murdering two people during a five-house rampage that morning.

When asked for comment on the matter, an Israeli military spokesperson told The Mail that the statements “further prove that any attempt to deny the horrors of October 7th and discredit the testimonies of witnesses, survivors, and freed hostages is part of a campaign to de-legitimize Israel and to promote the justification of terrorism.”

The representative added that both suspects are in custody awaiting trial in the Jewish state.

The testimony comes as the United Nations Secretary General, António Guterres, was criticized last month for excluding Hamas from a list of foreign actors that use sexual violence against civilian populations, despite a report from his own institution assigning such responsibility to the jihadist organization.
