HeadlineOct 10, 2023

Israel’s government says the death toll from Hamas’s weekend incursion into southern Israel has climbed to 900. On Monday, an Israeli volunteer rescue organization said it had discovered more than 100 bodies in the Be’eri kibbutz near the Gaza border. Among those missing after the massacre is 74-year-old Canadian Israeli peace activist Vivian Silver, who co-founded the Arab-Jewish Center for Equality, Empowerment and Cooperation and was a member of Women Wage Peace. Her son fears she has been taken hostage by Hamas.
