Here’s What 34-Days of Hamas Captivity Does to a 12-Year-Old Israeli Hostage

Yagel Yaacov, 12, was kidnapped by Hamas on October 7, 2023. The Israeli youth took a picture just days before he would end up being taken to Gaza by terrorists. Another picture of him was released 34 days later.

The differences are striking.

The saddest part about all this is that as a 12-year-old boy, he’s probably being treated better than most of his fellow captives.
