Watch: Israeli hostage Noa Argamani is reunited with father after Hamas kidnapping

This is the moment a 25-year-old Israeli woman taken hostage by Hamas was reunited with her father after eight months in captivity.

Footage posted on social media showed Noa Argamani embracing her father after being rescued by IDF troops in a daring raid on Saturday.

Ms Argamani was kidnapped along with her boyfriend Avinatan Or from the Supernova festival on the morning of Oct 7, and became one of the faces of the hostage crisis when footage of her abduction by two men on a motorbike emerged online. In the footage, she shouts: “Don’t kill me!”

Earlier this year, her 61-year-old mother Liora Argamani, who has stage four brain cancer, pleaded with world leaders to help bring home her daughter.

Ms Argamani was rescued alongside three other hostages, Almog Meir Jan, 21, Andrey Kozlov, 27, and Shlomi Ziv, 40, in a complex special daytime operation in the heart of Nuseirat in central Gaza.

They were among 251 captives seized by the militants in their October attack on southern Israel. There are now 116 hostages remaining in Gaza, including 41 the army says are dead.

The rescue is the largest such hostage recovery operation since the war with Hamas began in Gaza.
