Hamas Terrorist Tried to Sell Decapitated Israeli's Head for $10,000
The head of an Israeli soldier who was decapitated by Hamas terrorists on October 7 was put up for sale in Gaza for $10,000, it has emerged. Sergeant Adir Tahar, 19, from Jerusalem, was murdered by the terrorists after they threw grenades at him as they rampaged through southern Israel and massacred 1,200 Israelis.
The gunmen then beheaded the young soldier and took his severed head back to Gaza, his heartbroken father David Tahar told Israeli media as he blasted the “insanely barbaric” violation of his son’s body. David, overcome with grief, was forced to bury his son’s mutilated body before vowing to do everything in his power to bring Adir’s head home and give him “peace of mind and body.”
After a grueling two and a half months, IDF soldiers finally recovered the 19-year-old’s head inside a duffel bag filled with tennis balls in a freezer in Gaza, David said. The IDF later told him that after an interrogation of two Hamas terrorists, it emerged that one of them had tried to sell Adir’s head for $10,000 (£8,000) in Gaza.
“It's insanely barbaric,” David said, as the father detailed how in the depths of his despair he had found a video online showing his son’s decapitated body.
“The terrorists, the barbarians, they beheaded him and took the head to Gaza. I did everything I could, it wasn’t easy, in the end, I got a body without a head. I insisted that the army let me see the body,” David said. “They tried to explain to me that I should not see it.” (DM / VFI News)
