A Hamas terrorist called the mother of two young women who were kidnapped at a music festival and mocked them after they were dragged off to the Gaza Strip, a family friend said.
Tamar David, of Beit Dagan, received the harrowing phone Sunday morning call from the operative, who apparently obtained the phone number from one of her daughters, Hodia, 25, and Tair, 27, Mako reported.
“He called Hodia and Tair’s mother Tamar and laughed at the family,” family friend Tal Hezekiah told the news outlet in Hebrew, adding that he grabbed the phone from the anguished mom.
“Then the terrorist laughed and said to me in broken Hebrew: ‘Do you want to marry her?’ And hung up,” Hezekiah added
The friend said he passed along details about the shocking call to the Shin Bet, Israel’s internal security service.
“Since then he has not called his mother’s phone,” Hezekiah told Mako.
The sisters were among hundreds of young Israelis who attended the Tribe of Nova music festival near Kibbutz Reim when Hamas launched its attack against the Jewish state.
One of the sisters called their dad as they fled to tell him that gunfire erupted at the rave, but a short time later they went missing and have not been heard from since.
“They told their father that they were being shot at and one of them may have been injured. It’s not clear to us,” Hezekiah said.
“There was a video that was uploaded on social media and in one of the segments we saw for a few seconds Hodia when she was kidnapped and held in the Gaza Strip,” he told the outlet.
“They were taken in a Jeep or vehicle along with several other young people who were kidnapped at the party,” the friend added.
At least 260 have been reported dead at the festival, which witnesses have described as a “massacre.”
It was unclear how many people were kidnapped by the terrorists.
