Fears grow for baby Kfir as Israel ‘can’t confirm’ if 10-month-old Hamas hostage snatched with mum & brother are alive

FEARS grow for the fate of Hamas’s youngest hostage baby Kfir Bibas after IDF said it cannot confirm whether he is alive.

The terror group previously claimed that the ten-month-old was killed in an Israeli airstrike in Gaza alongside his four-year-old brother and their mum.

Hamas said baby Kfir was killed in an airstrike with his familyReuters

Kfir was kidnapped with his brother Ariel and their mum Shiri on October 7

Spokesperson Lt Col Peter Lerner told the Jerusalem Post: “We can’t confirm at this stage what Hamas said, and I’d be very cautious in accepting anything that Hamas says to begin with. 

“Of course, you know, we’re utilizing our intelligence in order to try and determine their situation. I don’t have anything to report at this stage.”

Lerner added he is “concerned” about the well-being of all of the hostages.

Baby Kfir, his brother Ariel, four, and their mum Shiri, 32 were snatched by the terrorists on October 7.

Harrowing footage showed the moment the family was kidnapped by Hamas from Kibbutz Nir Oz during their bloody massacre.

Shiri was seen clutching the two boys in one of the most haunting images of October 7.

Horrified onlookers screamed “she has a baby” as she was bundled away by Hamas.

The family was hiding in a safe room in their home on the border with Gaza when the terrorists attacked.

Yarden texted relatives “I love you all” as they sheltered – before telling family members “they are coming in”.

Just a few hours before the ceasefire deal between Israel and Hamas was agreed last month, Hamas’ military wing shockingly claimed they were all killed in the besieged enclave.

The terror group did not provide any evidence and Israel scrambled to investigate the claims.
