IDF accidentally shoots and kills three Israelis held hostage in Gaza

Israeli soldiers shot and killed three Israeli hostages in northern Gaza after misidentifying them as threats, the Israel Defense Forces said.

"During combat in Shejaiya, the IDF mistakenly identified three Israeli hostages as a threat. As a result, the troops fired toward them and they were killed," IDF spokesman Daniel Hagari said in a news briefing on Friday.

"During searches and checks in the area in which the incident occurred, a suspicion arose over the identities of the deceased," Hagari added. "Their bodies were transferred to Israeli territory for examination, after which it was confirmed that they were three Israeli hostages."
