Relatives of IDF observer Daniela Gilboa, kidnapped on October 7, have released a video recorded by terrorists about four months ago in which Daniela pleads for the government to take action to return the hostages.

The text of the appeal, apparently written by the terrorists, reads: "I am being bombed 24 hours a day. I am very, very afraid for my life. You almost killed me with your bombings once. Where were you on October 7 when I was kidnapped from my bed? Where are you now? Why do I, a servicewoman who gave her country her all, feel that you have forgotten me and abandoned me? My dear government, get your act together and start doing your job to bring us all home while we are still alive."

The family agreed to release the full video amid possible progress in negotiations with Hamas, fearing Israel may not make a deal with the terrorists.
