Hamas has released a new video showing 26-year-old hostage Noa Argamani being forced to say that two of her fellow captives are dead. They are believed to have been killed in IDF strikes.

It follows a video released earlier today in which Hamas said it would reveal tonight whether three hostages, including Ms Argamani, whose abduction horrified the world, were alive or dead.

The world watched in horror as a video emerged of Noa Argamani, 26, sitting on the back of a motorbike as she screamed “Don’t kill me” to the men surrounding her during Hamas’s attacks on Israel in October

In the footage they asked viewers: “What do you think?” – referring to the fate of Ms Argamani, 53-year-old Yossi Sharabi and 38-year-old Itai Svirsky, all attending the Nova Festival.

But in another video released today, Mrs Argamani claims that two other prisoners were killed in “our IDF attacks”, a reference to the Israeli military.

In an earlier video, Hamas gave the captives three options: all three would be killed, “some would be killed, some would be wounded” or all three would be spared.

Hamas released a video of hostage Noah Argamani. She explains how Yossi Sharabi and Itay Swirsky were killed in captivity.

Spokesman Abu Obaida is their claim that they were killed after the building they were in was hit by an Israeli air strike.

Itai Swirski is said to have been killed while being held in captivity by Hamas militants.

Yossi Sharabi was allegedly killed after the building where the hostages were being held was the target of an Israeli air strike.

It is a continuation of a 37-second video released on Sunday in which three hostages pleaded with Israel to stop its offensive on Gaza. Noah Argamani, 26, Yossi Sharabi, 53, and Itay Swirsky, 38, can be seen talking to the camera against a white background in the video, which was released on Sunday but is undated. The video appears to have been filmed indoors, but the location and time of the recording could not immediately be determined. In the video, which lasts just over 30 seconds, the hostages refer to each other by name. It ends by saying: “Tomorrow we will inform you of their fate.”
