Indian TV actor mourns death of cousin, husband in Hamas attack: reporttext_fields
New Delhi: An Indian TV actor said her cousin and her husband were killed ‘in cold blood’ in front of their children in Israel, according to NDTV.
‘My cousin Odaya and her husband were murdered in cold blood in the presence of their two children’, Madhura Naik was quoted as saying.
Madhura Naik described the horror of death in the family after Hamas unleashed a horrendous attack in Israel.
The actor who is a Jew of Indian origin said her family's grief can not be expressed in words, adding ‘Israel is in pain and the streets are burning in flames in the wrath of Hamas’.
Following the Hamas attack on Saturday morning, Israel opened an all-out war taking the death toll to over 3000 so far.
More reports from the warfront suggest a deepening crisis in the region with Hamas and Israel continuing conflict on the fourth day.
Madhura Naik complained of having been trolled for posting on social media the photos of her cousin’s family.
‘It shows how deep the pro-Palestinian agenda runs. I was shamed, humiliated and targeted for being Jewish,’ she was quoted as saying.
The murder of Odaya and her family shows the conflict has begun touching the lives of many who are far removed from the actual warzone.
Reports say that numerous children have been orphaned in the relentless rocket attacks and airstrikes.
Hamas killed more than 100 people in the kibbutz of Beeri alone, according to Moti Bukjin, a volunteer for a charity that is tasked to recover bodies.
Moti Bukjin added that Hamas operatives ‘murdered in cold blood children, babies, old people -- everyone.’
