An Israeli captive released from Gaza this week wrote a letter praising the good treatment by members of the Al-Qassam Brigades, saying her captive daughter “felt like a queen.”
In a letter to Al Qassam Brigade, published on Monday evening by the brigades, Danielle Aloni said my daughter felt like a queen in Gaza, for which I will forever be a prisoner of gratitude.
Danielle Aloni’s daughter Emilia, 5, was released on Nov. 24 as part of the humanitarian pause deal in Gaza between Israel and Palestinian group Hamas.
She wrote: “I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your extraordinary humanity shown towards my daughter, Emilia.”
She said that children should not be in captivity, but thanks to you and other kind people we met along the way, my daughter felt like a queen in Gaza,”.
Aloni wrote that Emilia said the captors were “like parents to her” and that she had the “feeling like all of you are her friends, not just friends, but truly beloved and good.”
“Thank you for the many hours you spent as caregivers,” Aloni wrote.
Israel launched a massive military campaign in the Gaza Strip following a cross-border attack by Hamas on Oct. 7.
It has since killed more than 15,000 Palestinians, including 6,150 children and more than 4,000 women, according to health authorities in the enclave.
