New Delhi: The Nuseirat refugee camp lies in the heart of the Gaza Strip within Palestinian territory. It was within one of the camp's bustling markets where Noa Argamani, a 26-year-old Israeli woman, was held captive by Hamas. Video footage captured her distress as she was taken into Gaza. Unbeknownst to Argamani and three other hostages, Israeli commandos had infiltrated the camp to carry out a daring rescue mission, as reported by the Washington Post.
Israeli soldiers, at 11 am on the day of the rescue, burst into the apartment where Argamani was being held saying "you are being rescued."
The operation to rescue Almog Meir Jan, 22, Andrey Kozlov, 27, and Shlomi Ziv, 41, was characterised by meticulous planning and significant military involvement. Extensively planned over several weeks, the mission enlisted thousands of soldiers, cutting-edge technological resources, and exacting tactics, according to the report. Israeli intelligence, aided by the US, scrutinized digital information, and drone recordings, and intercepted communications to locate the hostages' whereabouts.
The report by the Washington Post states that after verifying the hostages' whereabouts in Nuseirat, Israeli troops created detailed replicas of the buildings to practice the rescue operation. This meticulous preparation drew parallels to the renowned Operation Entebbe of 1976, which was launched in response to the hijacking of an Air France flight from Tel Aviv to Paris. Despite the increased risks associated with carrying out the raid during daylight hours, Israeli military strategists considered the opportunity for achieving surprise.
According to the report, IDF Chief of Staff Herzi Halevi and other security officials monitored the operation from the command room. Special forces, concealed in covert vehicles, including a truck resembling a civilian commercial vehicle and a white Mercedes filled with furniture, approached the designated area. According to the report, eyewitnesses recounted the sudden outbreak of gunfire as Israeli soldiers clashed with Hamas militants.
Despite initially managing to rescue Argamani without alerting her guards, complications arose with the other hostages, leading to a firefight that escalated the covert raid into a full-fledged conflict. While the rescue ultimately succeeded in retrieving the hostages, it resulted in significant devastation. Gaza health authorities reported over 270 Palestinian casualties, including civilians caught in the crossfire.
The conflict began with a deadly attack by Hamas on southern Israel on October 7, which resulted in 1,189 Israeli deaths and 252 individuals taken as hostages. Israel's response has been relentless, with the Gaza Health Ministry reporting over 37,232 deaths, mostly civilians
