Israeli soldier rescued in Gaza after being captured by Hamas is now providing intel for ‘future operations’

An Israeli soldier, who was rescued following a “special operation” in the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip, is now providing the country’s military with intelligence for “future operations,” it revealed Tuesday. 

Israel Defense Forces (IDF) spokesman Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus said in a video posted on X that he is “happy to say” that 19-year-old Pvt. Ori Megidish is now back home with her family after being abducted by Hamas on Oct. 7. 

“She was rescued in a special operation done by Israeli security forces, IDF and [Shin Bet], who went into Gaza, got her out based on intelligence and on a lot of resources that were allocated towards this,” Conricus said. “She is now home with her family, she is well, both mentally and physically. She has provided intelligence that we will be able to use in the future for future operations.” 

“We are committed and determined to get all of the 238 Israeli hostages that are still inside Gaza,” he added. 


“To the terrorists of Hamas and ISIS I say – you are monsters. We will continue to pursue you. We will continue to hunt you. We will strike you until you fall at our feet.”
