(ConcernedPatriot.com) – A video of one of the 199 known Israeli hostages taken to Gaza during a colossal terror strike on October 7 has been released by the Palestinian terror group Hamas.
The footage shows a young woman with bandages on her right arm sleeping in bed. On her left side, she has tattoos.
Hamas releases its first footage of a hostage. The group says it is providing medical treatment to her. Though I think this is a poor attempt to show they are treating the hostages well. The hostage appears to be Israeli. pic.twitter.com/JDATGYenCr

Straight into the camera, she says (in Hebrew, translated):
“Hi, I am Mia Shem, I am 21 years old, from Shoham, at the moment I am in Gaza, I came back on Saturday towards morning from the area of Sderot, there was a party, I was badly wounded in my hand, from the party they took me to Gaza, they took me to the hospital for three hours, they are worried about me, they are taking care of me, they are giving me medicines, everything is fine.
I’m just asking to be returned home as soon as possible, to my family, my parents and my brothers. Please get us out of here as soon as possible. Thank you.”
Keren Shem, who looks to be the same young woman in the video, spoke with Katie Couric a few days earlier regarding her daughter who went missing.
It is clear from the film that Hamas wants to exploit it to pressure Israel to engage in talks and cease attacking its positions in Gaza.
According to reports, over 4,100 people were wounded and over 1,400 dead since the deadly attack by the Palestinian terror group Hamas.
