Rescued Israeli hostage Noa Agramani was seen hugging her father in a tearful reunion after she was finally freed from eight months of Hamas captivity.

Noa, 25, along with Almog Meir, 21, Andrey Kozlov, 27, and Shlomi Ziv, 40, were rescued by Israeli forces in the largest rescue operation since they were taken hostage on October 7. The sunreports.

Noa was seen being loaded onto a motorcycle as she pleaded with them: “Don’t kill me.”

It was a video that shocked the world.

Now there is joy as she is seen hugging her father Yaakov as the two share a cold bottle of Coke.

She and the other three hostages have spent 245 days in captivity since their kidnapping eight months ago.

Noa will soon meet her mother Liora, who is suffering from terminal brain cancer – and had previously said that she only wanted to see her kidnapped daughter “one more time”.

Liora, 61, previously told the Times of Israel: “I want to see her again. Talk to her again.

“I don’t have much time left in this world.”

The brave mother’s wish will soon become reality and she will finally be able to see her beloved daughter.

Yaakov praised the rescue operation that freed her daughter, saying: “Let’s not forget, there are still 120 hostages and we have to free them.”

“We must make every effort at our disposal to bring them to Israel and to their families.”

All four hostages were found in two different locations during a daring daylight raid by Israeli special forces.

Noa was rescued in one location, while Meir Jan, Kozlov and Ziv were in the second Hamas base.

Hundreds of soldiers were involved in the “complex operation”.

The four hostages are said to be fine, but they were immediately taken to hospital after being rescued from Gaza.

Noa also spoke by phone with Israeli President Isaac Herzog and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

“I am so happy to be here. Thank you for everything, thank you for this moment,” said a smiling Noa.

However, her friend Avinatan Or is probably still being held captive by Hamas.

The IDF said in a statement: “[Four hostages] were rescued in a special operation by the IDF, ISA and Israeli police from two different locations in the heart of Nuseirat after they were kidnapped by Hamas at the Nova music festival.

“They are in good health and have been taken to the ‘Sheba’ Tel-HaShomer Medical Center for further medical examinations.

“We will continue to make every effort to bring the hostages home.”

Israeli government officials said last week that they believed at least 80 Hamas hostages were still alive.

Meanwhile, a Hamas official said Israel’s release of four hostages after eight months was “a sign of failure, not success.”

Shocking footage shows the moment Noa was grabbed and dragged away by Hamas terrorists before being taken to Gaza.

She was at the Nova music festival in the desert when the militants dragged her away on a motorcycle, begging her: “Don’t kill me.”

The disturbing footage shows her with her arms outstretched as she begs them to let her go.

The 25-year-old student screams: “Don’t kill me! No, no, no!” as the shooters race away with her trapped.

Her boyfriend, Avi Nathan, is held nearby by two other terrorists and watches in horror as his helpless girlfriend is killed.

Noa’s family only learned of her kidnapping when they came across disturbing footage on the Internet.

Since her abduction, further images of her captivity in an unknown location have appeared on the Internet.

Among the remaining hostages are many children, including young girls, women and the elderly.

Netanyahu said his country would continue to “fight with its fingernails” despite international authorities’ calls for a ceasefire.

Israel’s military spokesman Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari said the forces came under heavy fire during today’s rescue mission.

Commandos working to rescue the hostages responded with fire “from the air and from the street,” he said.

Hagari said: “We know of less than 100 [Palestinian] Victims. I don’t know how many of them are terrorists.”

According to the Israeli military, the four hostages are being held by terrorists in the homes of families in two Hamas-controlled buildings in the Gaza Strip.

Hamas has previously been accused of using civilians as human shields.

Hamas’ media office claimed that “210 martyrs” were killed in the Israeli operation, but this figure was disputed by medics on the ground, who put the estimate at a much lower level of around 70.

Previously, British-Israeli hostage Nadav Popplewell was killed in Hamas captivity, just weeks after the terrorist group taunted his family with a gruesome ten-second video of him.

He was taken hostage along with his 79-year-old mother, Channah Peri, from their home in Kibbutz Nirim during the horrific massacre on October 7.

Channah and Nadav are said to have stayed together throughout their imprisonment in a tunnel under Gaza.

Channah was later released on November 24 under a temporary ceasefire.

Meanwhile, Israel has discovered the body of Shani Louk along with two other hostages in the Gaza Strip.

German tattoo artist Shani Louk was the victim of the Hamas massacre on October 7, when she was kidnapped from the Nova Festival.

Israel Defense Forces spokesman Daniel Hagari announced the tragic news, saying hostages Amit Buskila and Itzhak Gelerenter were also found in the Gaza Strip.

He confirmed that all three were killed by Hamas terrorists during the October 7 music festival massacre and their bodies were taken to Gaza.

Previously, Hamas had launched a terrifying rocket attack on Israel for the first time in months, forcing civilians to flee their homes.

Hamas announced that it had targeted Israel’s largest city, saying: “In response to the Zionist massacres of civilians, we fired a large salvo at Tel Aviv.”

The rocket attack is believed to have come from the city of Rafah, which Israel has been bombing continuously in an effort to end the bloody war.

Just a few days ago, Israel was called upon to immediately cease its operations in Rafah, a southern part of the Gaza Strip where countless Palestinians have sought refuge.

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) said the humanitarian crisis in Rafah had “further worsened” and the situation was now “catastrophic”.

ICJ President Nawaf Salam said: “Israel must immediately stop its military offensive.”

The International Court of Justice accused Israel of restricting aid to Gaza, which it denies.

The chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, Karim Khan, had requested arrest warrants against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for alleged war crimes in the Gaza Strip.

Leading Hamas representatives were also involved in the requests for international arrest warrants.

The attack on Rafah in recent weeks came at a time when Israeli forces are seeking to track down and destroy the last remnants of Hamas in order to end the war.

Israel says the city is Hamas’ last major stronghold in the Gaza Strip.

They are in the process of “eliminating” “terrorists” and “terrorist infrastructure” and have already hit hundreds of “terrorist targets”.

Since the beginning of May, there have been repeated air raids and three “significant” tunnel shafts have been discovered.

When the planned attack began, military tanks surrounded the entire eastern half of the city, which was populated by refugees.

The remaining hostages are believed to still be held underground in Hamas hideouts. According to the Gaza Strip’s Health Ministry, the Israeli military operation in Gaza has now killed at least 35,000 Palestinian civilians.
