The audio, played yesterday at a United Nations meeting in New York by Israel’s Foreign Minister, hears how a gunman allegedly took the phone of one of his Israeli victims to call his mother and father and tell them about his exploits in Mefalsim.
‘Dad I am inside Mefalsim. Open your WhatsApp right now, and see all the ones I killed. Look at how many I killed with my own hands – your son killed Jews!’ he exclaims.
‘I am talking to you from the phone of a Jew, I killed her and her husband, I killed ten with my own hands… Their blood is on my hands, let me talk to Mom!’
The father, who repeated ‘Allahu Akhbar’ in response to his son’s comments, promptly handed the phone across.
‘Mother, your son is a hero. I was the first to enter under the guidance and with the help of Allah,’ the terrorist declares, before his brother tells him to come back to Gaza.
But the gunman immediately retorts: ‘There is no return, it is victory or martyrdom.’
The clip’s authenticity is yet to be verified, with critics arguing the audio may well have been faked as part of an Israeli disinformation campaign.

Earlier this week Israel hosted a 45-minute screening of video footage recovered from the bodycams and smartphones of dead Hamas gunmen showing the brutality of their raids on October 7.
The footage showed clip after clip of civilians being shot, stabbed, tortured and burned, according to journalists who attended the screening.
Their corpses were arranged for all to see – bound, gagged and riddled with bullet holes and knife wounds.
Others were decapitated with knives – and one victim was partially decapitated with a garden hoe as he lay cradling a bullet wound in his stomach.
One young girl was seen hiding under a desk, waiting as the terrorists decided what her fate would be. Moments later they gunned her down from point-blank range.
One clip showed the moment a Hamas terrorist threw a grenade at a father and his son.
The blast kills the father, who pitches forward into the turf, while the young boy is covered in his blood.
The child is dragged inside and forced to sit next to his brother, whose eye is a bloody mess – either due to shrapnel from the grenade blast or torture.
One of the boys sobs: ‘Why am I alive?’ as the ruthless terrorists stand over the body of his father.
Another dark chunk of footage showed how unsuspecting IDF soldiers were beheaded with their headless corpses left splayed in the streets, while a contingent of female soldiers were incapacitated by a grenade before being shot at near point blank range.
The journalists also said they witnessed scenes of sheer panic, terror and devastation at the Nova music festival, where more than 250 civilians were slaughtered.
Some victims hid in skips, others in portable toilets, but all were found and either gunned down, or savagely beaten before being taken hostage.

But the IDF did publish a new snippet of footage captured from the bodycam of one Hamas gunman during the terror group’s ruthless October 7 attacks.
The clip showed how the gunman, brandishing his AK-47 assault rifle, ordered a pair of Israelis driving slowly along the road to stop their car.
Without giving the driver a second to comply, the gunman immediately starts blasting bullets into the vehicle from feet away. The passengers can be seen recoiling from the rounds in the cabin as the car rolls past.
The release of the footage was announced by government spokesman Eylon Levy to counter what he says is a ‘Holocaust denial-like phenomenon’ amid backlash over Israel’s airstrikes of the Gaza Strip.
‘The IDF has been collecting footage from bodycams taken by Hamas death squads as they rampaged through the communities in southern Israel, butchering everyone in sight,’ Levy said.
‘I can’t believe I’m saying this… As we work to defeat the terror organisation we are witnessing a Holocaust denial-like phenomenon evolving in real time as people are casting doubt on the magnitude of the atrocities Hamas committed against our people and in fact recorded in order to glorify this violence.’
