Reports have emerged that Hamas militants have captured a top Israeli military officer.
Both The Telegraph and The Jewish Chronicle reported on rumors that Hamas had captured Israeli Major Gen. Nimrod Aloni. The Chronicle reported that the claim came from Hamas itself.
An image purportedly showing Aloni being forcibly led down a street while barefoot and in his underwear quickly began spreading on social media.
Aloni, the former commander of the Israeli Defense Force’s Gaza division, was described by The Telegraph as “one of the IDF’s most senior commanders [who] runs special forces operations.”
Hamas official Saleh al-Arouri said “senior officers” had been captured.
“Our detainees in [Israeli] prisons, their freedom is looming large. What we have in our hands will release all our prisoners. The longer fighting continues, the higher the number of prisoners will become,” al-Arouri told Al Jazeera.
“We managed to kill and capture many Israeli soldiers. The fighting is still on.”
The IDF denied that any major generals had been captured, according to The Telegraph.
Citing Israeli news stations, the outlet noted that Hamas militants have captured around 50 Israeli civilians.
