Son of elderly hostage demands Israel correct its ‘first failure’ and save hostages before attacking Gaza

The son of an abducted elderly peace activist urged the Israeli government to “deal with the consequences your failure” and prioritize retrieving hostages before striking against Hamas. 

“When Israel was supposed to defend my family, they didn’t manage to keep my family safe,” Lior Peri told Fox News. “Deal with the consequences of your first failure and only afterwords strive for a long-term solution.”

Peri’s 79-year-old father, Chaim Peri, lived in Nir Oz, a kibbutz bordering Gaza, for 60 years and committed his life to improving Israeli-Palestinian relations up until the day Hamas terrorists attacked his community. 

Peri said Israel must “correct” the neglect that led to the defense failure and hundreds of Israelis trapped in Gaza. 

“For some reason they didn’t manage to keep my family safe,” he said. “The terrorists were walking around the kibbutz for hours without interference, and we are still amazed how this situation happened.”
