The body of Ron Binyamin, Hy”d, 52, was recovered from Gaza by the IDF after being held there since his murder by Hamas on Oct. 7, the IDF confirmed on Motzoei Shabbos. This announcement came one day after the IDF reported the recovery of three other Israeli hostages’ bodies.

IDF spokesperson Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari stated that Binyamin’s body was recovered simultaneously with the three other hostages’ bodies on Friday. However, the process of identification and notification to the family took longer.

“Based on verified intelligence in our possession, Ron Binyamin was murdered during the Oct. 7 massacre at the Mefalsim intersection, and his body was seized and brought to Gaza by Hamas terrorists,” Hagari said.

The operation was “based on precise Shin Bet intelligence obtained during the interrogations of terrorists who were apprehended in the Gaza Strip, as well as intelligence from the IDF Intelligence Directorate,” he added.
