Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu shared distressing photos Thursday of babies killed during the slaughter by Hamas terrorists — including a pair completely charred after seemingly being burned while in an embrace.
“Here are some of the photos Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu showed to US Secretary of State Antony Blinken,” his office said alongside the distressing images, the New York Post reported.
The gruesome photos showed tiny, mangled bodies and a blurred-out infant in a bloody onesie.
“Warning: These are horrifying photos of babies murdered and burned by the Hamas monsters,” the leader’s office tweeted.
“Hamas is inhuman,” it said. “Hamas is ISIS.”
The disturbing photos came just one day after Netanyahu tweeted out a picture of a child’s bloody bed.
Hamas terrorists have slaughtered at least 40 babies and young children — decapitating some of them — at a kibbutz near the Gaza border, Israeli military officials confirmed on Thursday.
“It’s so macabre that no one wanted to reveal it until they had 100% confirmation,” French journalist Margot Haddad wrote in a translated tweet.
“It is a horror, a massacre. For those asking for the source. They are multiple: Israeli army, internal intelligence service and atrocious images which reached me and which I was able to crosscheck,” she said.
“But the best source remains this: courageous journalists from the foreign press who were able to see / agreed to see with their own eyes the bodies in Kfar Aza.”
Kfar Aza was one of several Israeli kibbutzim attacked by Hamas over the weekend when terrorists crossed from Gaza into southern Israel and unleashed a barrage of violence that gave way to an all-out war between the two sides.
Around 70 Hamas terrorists are believed to have carried out the atrocities at Kfar Aza with guns, grenades and knives, i24 News said.
Some reportedly carried ISIS flags with them on their rampage.
“It’s not a war,” Gen. Itai Veruv, head of the IDF’s Depth Command, told reporters. “It’s not a battlefield. You see the babies, the mothers, the fathers in their bedrooms, in their protection rooms, and how the terrorists kill them. It’s not a war. … It’s a massacre.
“They killed babies in front of their parents, and then killed the parents. They killed parents, and we found babies between the dogs and the family killed before him. They cut heads of the people.
“It is something that I never saw in my life,” the military leader said. “It’s something that we used to imagine from our grandfathers, grandmothers in the pogrom in Europe and other places. It’s not something that happens in new history.”
The US has agreed to firmly stand beside the Jewish nation as it fights back against the terrorists.
“The message that I bring to Israel is this: You may be strong enough on your own to defend yourself, but as long as America exists, you will never, ever have to,” Blinken said at a news conference Thursday.
“We will always be there by your side.”
