Israel finds second body of hostage near al-Shifa hospital as they discover Noa Marciano, 19, who was kidnapped by Hamas | The Sun

THE IDF has recovered two bodies of hostages kidnapped during the October 7 massacre near the al-Shifa hospital.

Israeli troops discovered the body of Corporal Noa Marciano, 19, at “a structure adjacent to" the facility after she was killed by Hamas terrorists.

The teenager was serving in the Nahal Oz base when it was overrun by militants.

Hamas released footage of the soldier speaking to the camera four days after she was taken hostage.

She identified herself and confirmed she was being held captive in the besieged Palestinian enclave of Gaza.

The horror video then cut to vile images of what the terrorists claimed was Marciano's dead body.

The IDF has now confirmed her body has been found and taken back to Israel, where tests confirmed her identity.

It comes after Yehudit Weiss – who the IDF says was taken from her home in Be’eri – was found dead in a structure next to the hospital.

The 65-year-old had been identified by forensic examiners and the family has been informed.

Israeli military also claimed rifles and rocket-propelled grenades were found in the building.

The IDF said: "The national task before our eyes is to locate the missing and return the abducted persons home.

"The IDF is operating alongside and in full coordination with the relevant national and security institutions in order to pursue these tasks. 

"We will not cease from the mission until it will be completed."

The IDF did not provide further details on Weiss’s date or cause of death, The Times of Israel reports.

The mum-of-five was abducted from Kibbutz Be’eri on October 7.

Her husband, Shmulik Weiss, was found murdered in the safe room of their home.

Israel has also killed the Hamas monster who spat on and paraded Shani Louk's naked body through Gaza, her family claims.

The mother of the murdered tattoo artist, 22, reportedly told a top rabbi that her daughter's assailant had been wiped out by Israel's military.

The last time Shani had been seen was when footage emerged of her lifeless half-naked body being dragged through Gaza in a truck as Hamas's cross-border killing spree still raged on.

The claims have not yet been officially confirmed.

Earlier this month, the desperate parents of 32 child hostages snatched by Hamas pleaded last night for the terror group to release them.

The petrified youngsters are being held underground in the 311-mile network of tunnels dubbed the Gaza Metro as Israel battles to crush the jihadists and bring them home.

It comes as Israeli troops claim to have uncovered laptops containing pictures and videos of hostages at al Shifa Hospital – Gaza's largest.

Dozens of victims were kidnapped by Hamas during the horror October 7 massacre – and haven't been heard from since.

But there is now fresh hope for the captives as Israeli soldiers say they have found photographic evidence of them of al-Shifa hospital.

Lieutenant Colonel Jonathan Conricus told The BBC during a tour of the facility: "We uncovered a lot of computers and other equipment which could really shed light on the current situation, hopefully regarding hostages as well."

He said the devices were found alongside a number of military books and pamphlets the IDF believe suggest Hamas terrorists were there "within the last few days".

Lt Col Conricus said a map was also found that appeared to mark entry and exit routes from the hospital.

Israel has claimed the hospital is the "beating heart" of Hamas, and this week launched a raid to hunt down terrorists using it as cover.

IDF footage showed troops taking in humanitarian as thousands of patients, doctors and displaced Palestinians have been trapped inside the besieged complex for weeks.

The IDF also claimed that it had successfully provided incubators, baby food and medical supplies to the hospital.

Israel said what is called a "precise and targeted" raid inside al Shifa is a "military necessity" to root out Hamas.
