JERUSALEM, Israel – Hamas released two more Israeli hostages Monday evening, and Israel released bodycam footage of the Oct. 7 massacre, as the Israel-Hamas War continued for the 18th day.

Hamas posted video of its fighters taking care of Yocheved Lifshitz, 85, and Nurit Cooper, 79, before handing them over to the Red Cross in Egypt, which then brought them to Israel.

The women were kidnapped on Oct. 7 from Kibbutz Nir Oz near the Gaza Strip. It brings the total of those released to four. Their husbands are still in captivity.

Daniel Lifshitz, grandson of one of the hostages, said, “We really hope this is the beginning for the release of the rest of the hostages, which is more important and more important than their release, we hope this will continue.”

At least 220 Israelis are still being held hostage by Hamas, including 30 children. One of them, Ohad Munder Zichri, turned 9 years old in captivity Monday.

Macron arrived in Tel Aviv Tuesday and met with Israeli-French nationals who lost loved ones, as well as families of hostages. He also met with President Isaac Herzog.

Earlier, Israeli officials showed journalists terrorist bodycam footage of the initial Hamas invasion. Most of the material was not for publication, but officials said the release was made to combat a “Holocaust denial-like phenomenon” that is appearing in the media.

“Of the couple hundred journalists who attended the screening, many of them were brought to tears by what they saw, and some had to get up and leave the room. But the IDF said it was important to release the unedited video to counter the false narrative that’s being pushed around the world that this is all just an exaggeration,” CBN News correspondent Chuck Holton reports.

One of the milder clips that was released showed a victim’s car cam as terrorists riddled the vehicle with bullets until it crashed.

The material also included an instruction manual detailing the offensive plans of the Hamas attack, as well as how to handle the kidnapped Israelis.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Yoav Gallant and Lt. Gen. Herzi Halevi, Israeli Defense Forces chief of staff, told the nation they are working together as an iron fist to eliminate Hamas.

“I want the citizens of Israel to know something else.” Netanyahu declared. “We make the decisions here and in the War Cabinet unanimously. We do so with great responsibility. We do so with deep awareness. We are fighting together and we will win together—only together.”
