One of the Palestinian female terrorist prisoners who has been released in exchange for 26 Israeli hostages who had been held captive by Hamas in Gaza since they were brutally taken from their homes on Oct. 7, is hoping for more kidnappings “to empty the prisons.”

Welcomed by a crowd of cheering Palestinians after her release, terrorist Hanan Barghouti praised Hamas – “the resistance” – for her freedom, thereby blessing their terror attack on Israel on Oct. 7 and the taking of over 200 hostages.

She implicitly called for more kidnappings when she expressed hope that “the resistance will release all the female prisoners, and will empty the prisons”:

Posted text: “In video: ‘We raise our heads up high with the resistance’ – the first words of released female prisoner Hanan Barghouti (i.e., arrested for terror support), who was sentenced to 6 months of administrative detention, and is the mother of 4 prisoner sons in the occupation’s (i.e., Israel’s) prisons.”

Hanan Barghouti – 59-year-old female Palestinian terrorist who was put in administrative detention on Sept. 5, 2023, for promoting and supporting terrorism.

Barghouti was released on Nov. 24, 2023, as part of a prisoner exchange deal between Israel and Hamas in which Israel agreed to release 150 terrorist prisoners in exchange for 50 Israeli and foreign hostages during the Israeli counter-terror operation against Hamas’ terror war on Israel.

Upon her release, Barghouti praised Hamas and implicitly called for more kidnappings, stating that Hamas (“the resistance”) will “empty the prisons.”.

At least 1,200 Israelis, including over 1,000 civilians, were murdered and over 4,800 wounded, in addition to at least 243 (including 46 later released or liberated, and 2 found murdered) who were abducted into the Gaza Strip.

This transpired during this Hamas terror war that began when approximately 3,000 Hamas terrorists broke through Israel’s security fence at the Gaza Strip border and launched a surprise attack, taking control of several Israeli towns and attacking a music festival on the Jewish holiday of Simchat Torah, which fell on the Sabbath, Oct. 7, 2023.

During the massacre the terrorists tortured, raped, shot, beheaded, and burned their victims alive, murdering entire families and leaving at least 21 children without parents.

Hamas terrorists also fired at least 5,000 rockets at Israeli population centers. In response, Israel launched Operation Iron Swords to counter the Hamas terror threat.

Hezbollah terrorists in Lebanon joined Hamas’ terror war starting from the following day, attacking Israel from the north.

Occasional rocket launches and shootings continued from Lebanon throughout the war.

A ceasefire and prisoner exchange deal began on Nov. 24, 2023, in which Israel agreed to release 150 terrorist prisoners, pause drone surveillance in the Gaza Strip, and allow movement between the northern and southern Gaza Strip, in return for 50 Israeli female and child hostages held by Hamas.

Muhammad Deif – Palestinian terrorist and chief commander of the Izz A-Din Al-Qassam Brigades (Hamas’ military wing).

He organized several terror attacks, including the first Jaffa Street suicide bombing in Jerusalem (27 murdered, 35 wounded, Feb. 25, 1996), the second Jaffa Street suicide bombing in Jerusalem (18 murdered, over 40 wounded, March 3, 1996), the Ashkelon Junction suicide bombing (1 murdered, 35 wounded, March 3, 1996), the Elei Sinai shooting attack (2 murdered, 15 wounded, Oct. 2, 2001 and the Atzmona shooting attack (5 murdered, 15 wounded, March 7, 2002). He also led the cell that kidnapped and murdered 3 Israeli soldiers: Shahar Simani (April 20, 1994), Aryeh Frankental (July 7, 1994), and Nachshon Wachsman (Oct. 9, 1994).
