Shocking pictures spread around the world: Hamas terrorists dragging the body of Shani Luk through the streets of Gaza. Palestinians were being haunted by the lifeless body of a German-Israeli citizen. Now Israel Defense Forces (IDF) was able to kill one of these Hamas terrorists. Shani’s mother Richarda Louck told American Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, who is world famous primarily for his TV appearances.
One of the terrorists seen in the viral video of carrying Shani Lauk’s body on a pickup truck was killed. Shani Lauk had earlier participated in the famous Nova Music Festival on 7 October. He was kidnapped there. Her persecutors broke her legs and probably severely sexually abused her before she was killed by Hamas.
The body was then driven across the Gaza Strip in the back of a pickup truck, while hundreds of civilians stood in the streets and spit on it. They also chanted “Allahu Akbar” (“God is greatest”).
Two weeks earlier, IDF forces and volunteers had recovered part of Shani’s skull. Israel’s President Isaac Herzog later reported that the discovery showed that he had been decapitated after his murder. “This means that when these barbaric, sadistic animals attacked the Israelis, tortured them and killed them they simply decapitated them. “This is a tremendous tragedy and I offer my deepest condolences to his family,” Herzog said. “Around 40 bodies have not yet been identified,” he said.
