Bodies of 40 babies discovered in kibbutz

Editor’s note: Today, reporters were taken to Kibbutz Kfar Aza. There, they were allowed to see the bodies of 40 babies, most murdered a point-blank range by Hamas, removed from the community along with the bodies of over 60 other victims.  According to news reports, babies were found murdered, some beheaded.

Mark Waldman, National Political Director of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, has penned the following letter to supporters asking their support in contacting Congress:

With each hour that passes, we learn more horrific details about the barbaric Hamas attack. Today, media were allowed to see firsthand the atrocities committed on Kibbutz Kfar Aza. It included images of forty babies.

This community and its residents are particularly close to all of us. Each year, they open their homes to members of Congress, foreign leaders, and visitors who tour the kibbutz and learn about life in southern Israel.

In August, 24 House Democrats walked this road as they learned about the threat of Palestinian terror near Israeli communities.

On Saturday, the first Hamas paragliders landed at the exact spot where these visitors are briefed by members of the kibbutz.

Ynet photographer Roee Idan took the photo at right outside his home at the moment Hamas invaded.

Roee was later shot, holding his 3-year-old daughter. His wife was murdered in their home, while their other two children, 6 and 9, were rescued after hiding in a closet for hours.

40 babies murdered

What is left behind is shocking and heartbreaking. 40 babies taken out on gurneys. Homes razed. Cars torched. Cribs, strollers and furniture strewn.

Israeli Major General Itai Veruv said, “You see the babies, the mothers, the fathers, in their bedrooms, in their protection rooms and how the terrorist kills them…It is something that I never saw in my life. It’s something that we used to imagine from our grandfathers, grandmothers in the pogrom in Europe.”

We mourn with the families of those lost in this unspeakable horror, and with all Israelis grieving their loved ones.

Hundreds of funerals are taking place across the country today, and more than 360,000 reservists have been called up for duty.

Please continue to contact your members of Congress. Urge them to cosponsor a new bipartisan resolution to stand with Israel.

The coming days, weeks and months will see the Israelis take the necessary actions to defeat Hamas. We have a vital role to play in helping educate friends, family and colleagues about what is happening in Israel.

Feel free to share these graphics and messages on social media.

May God protect the people of Israel and the brave soldiers of the IDF.

Mark Waldman is AIPAC National Political Director
