Hamas terrorists murdering hundreds of civilians in their homes as they screamed in terror, gunmen beheading victims and burning their dead bodies — these are just some of the atrocities that feature in a grisly montage of footage released by Israel.
One harrowing clip, retrieved from the terrorists’ body cameras and shared by the Israeli military as part of the 43-minute compilation video, shows the gunmen first sitting on pick up trucks while holding their automatic rifles, eager for the hell they were about to unleash on the unsuspecting families living in the Be’eri kibbutz.
In the next scene, security cameras from within the usually quiet kibbutz show the terrorists lying in wait, ready to ambush. The moment comes when a resident rolls up to the security gate in a car and opens it. The gunmen quickly shoot him dead.
Moving quickly, the black-clad gunmen, run across the kibbutz while shouting ‘where are the children’ before going door to door looking for Israeli families to slaughter indiscriminately or drag to Gaza as hostages.
Harrowing footage showed the terrorists murdering families in their homes or as they tried to flee in their cars. Further horrific video showed gunmen in the process of beheading a body with a hoe and burnt corpses thrown in a dumpster.
One appalling image showed the charred body of a baby, whose body is so disfigured it is impossible to make out where their arms and legs would have been. Much of the footage featured in the 43-minute compilation is too graphic for MailOnline to publish.
While Israel’s military has previously released a few snippets of video to show the horrific atrocities committed by Hamas terrorists on October 7, the latest footage is an unceasing display of horrors.

The Israeli military shared the footage with foreign correspondents yesterday in an apparent effort to counter the criticism over Israel’s ruthless bombardment of the Gaza Strip which has so far killed at least 2,778 people.
The video showed the bodies of civilians who had been bound. A room with at least seven bodies reduced to ash. Civilians shot in bedrooms, bathrooms, front yards. Blood so thick it nearly obscured hallway floors.
It also showed the ease with which Hamas militants moved around inside Israel. In Kibbutz Be’eri, people slept as the militants peered into people’s dark living rooms. They toyed with outdoor decorations, using a cigarette lighter to set a dreamcatcher hanging on someone’s window ablaze.
They shot randomly, at an air conditioner, at an ambulance’s tires, at a dog running out to greet them. They perched on lawn chairs outside a quiet home, taking a water break. Israeli security forces were nowhere to be found. Israel’s rescue service later found more than 120 bodies there.
In another sickening video, Hamas gunmen were seen storming what appeared to be an IDF border post amid their ruthless surprise assault on October 7.
Hamas gunmen are seen streaming into a darkened room having just tossed a grenade into the enclosed space. Female soldiers are heard wailing in pain and fear as the attackers surround them, brandishing Kalashnikov assault rifles.
For a moment it looked as though the gunmen had reconsidered their actions, approaching the desk behind which the women were cowering and pulling away an office chair as they spoke in relatively calm tones.
But it quickly became apparent that the attackers were simply making way for a clean execution. A woman can be heard whimpering in pain before another final shot is fired. And then there was silence.
In other clips, terrorists on motorcycles pulled bodies out of cars, emptying their pockets and grabbing their mobile phones before moving on.
In videos from civilians’ phones, partygoers cried as they ran for safety across the open fields where they had just been dancing at the open-air Tribe of Nova music festival.
A young man filmed the shelter where he and at least 10 others took cover. Bloodied people writhed and moaned on the ground as others stood around them, looks of terror in their eyes.
The terrorists pulled young civilians, bloodied and stupefied, into the beds of trucks by their hair. As they sped back to Gaza, the gleeful militants flashed peace signs to the camera. The Israeli military said Hamas terrorists are holding at least 199 civilians hostage in Gaza.
In Gaza, the terrorists filmed themselves pulling a dead soldier’s body from a car before young men cheered and stomped on it. A young woman whose face was marred was pulled from a car trunk by her hair, pushed into the backseat and then driven off as a crowd ran alongside.
As soon as the civilians stopped at the gate and activated the electronic barrier, the gunmen sprang out from cover, pointed their rifles at the car windows from mere feet away, and blasted the occupants
Further video has emerged of the moment Hamas terrorists ran towards homes in the Be’eri kibbutz and unleashed a hail of bullets on the terrified families living there

The briefing with reporters came as Israel cut off vital supplies to the Gaza Strip and pounded the territory with airstrikes. Hundreds of thousands of soldiers massed outside the territory ready to invade in response to the Hamas assault in which more than 1,400 people were killed.
In Gaza, meanwhile, the death toll rose to more than 2,700 people, many of them civilians, according to health authorities there. On Monday, an Israeli military spokesman, Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari, accused Hamas of using civilians as shields in order to sway world opinion.
In past fighting, Israel has come under heavy international criticism for causing large numbers of civilian deaths. The release of the 43-minute video showing some of the victims of the Hamas attack appeared to be an effort to counter the criticism and keep the world’s attention focused on the deaths of Israeli civilians.
‘This is not just a war against Israel, it’s a war against humanity,’ Hagari said.
‘The scale of the operation, the coordination, surprised us,’ Hagari added. ‘We have reinforcements at the Gaza border, but this wasn’t just a terrorist attack. This was a sovereign operation. That is why they succeeded.’
The terrorists were well prepared. The videos showed some dressed in army fatigues to look like Israeli soldiers. Others were dressed like police officers.
They carried zip ties to tie victim’s hands before they killed them and to bind hostages in the backs of trucks. They coordinated with one another on radios.
Dozens of militants in trucks whooped and celebrated on Israeli roads as bodies and cars burned around them.
Hagari said Israel has detained some of the terrorists and is interrogating them to find out how the attack was coordinated.
Israel’s defence and intelligence establishment has come under criticism for failing to prevent or repel the attack, which was planned in plain sight. Border communities were left on their own for hours.
A rescue team who visited the Kfar Aza kibbutz, just minutes down the road from Be’eri and the first settlement to be targeted by Hamas terrorists, told how they saw a pregnant lady lying on the floor of the first house they walked into.
When they turned her over, they saw that her unborn baby had been sliced from her womb.
‘We saw a pregnant lady lying on the floor, and then we turn her around and see that the stomach is cut open, wide open,’ Yossi Landau, an aid worker at the NGO Zaka, told i24News, his voice cracking with emotion.
‘The unborn baby, still connected with umbilical cord, was stabbed with a knife. And the mother was shot in the head. And you use your imagination, trying to figure out what came first.’

Last week, Israel today released harrowing images of tiny babies who were murdered and burned by Hamas terrorists amid their ruthless attacks.
One appalling image shows the small body of a baby, who couldn’t be more than 12 months old, lying on a now bloodied white body bag that is too large for it. The little child’s baby grow dotted with flowers is covered in blood after the rampaging terrorists unleashed horrors that defy belief.
Another two photographs released by Israel show the blackened and charred bodies of two babies who were murdered by the Hamas gunmen.
In response to the savage attacks, Israel has relentlessly bombed the Gaza Strip. More than 2,700 Palestinians have died in the air strikes on the cramped territory home to more than two million people.
The combination of air strikes, dwindling necessities caused by Israel’s blockade, and Israel’s mass evacuation order for the north of the Gaza Strip has thrown the tiny territory’s 2.3 million people into upheaval and caused increasing desperation.
More than 1 million Palestinians have fled their homes, and 60 per cent are now in the approximately eight-mile area south of the evacuation zone, the UN said.
Aid workers warned that the territory was near complete collapse with ever-decreasing supplies of water and medicine and with power running out at hospitals.
