CNN anchor Jake Tapper brought hard to bare testimony of an IDF elite unit paramedic who had been at Be'eri and had found the body of teenage girls who were raped before being executed by the Hamas terrorists who infiltrated their home on October 7.

Dr. Cochav Elkayam-Levy, Chair of the civil commission on Hamas crimes against women on October 7 said Israel may never know everything that had happened during the Hamas assault. "We know that most women who were raped and sexually assaulted were also murdered," she said adding that it will take time until stories are revealed and survivors share what had happened to them.
