Orión Hernández Radoux, 30, Hanan Yablonka, 42, and Michel Nisenbaum, 59, Hy”d, were all killed on Oct. 7, according to new “reliable intelligence” discovered amid the ongoing war.

The bodies of the three were kidnapped from the Mefalsim area, the IDF reported, the same location where Hamas terrorists murdered and abducted four other hostages whose bodies were recovered last week from a tunnel in Jabaliya. Hernández Radoux was a Mexican-French national. Both he and Yablonka, had been at the music event near Re’im when attacked by Hamas terrorists.
