Harrowing dashcam video has emerged of Hamas terrorists storming an Israeli music festival, shooting at partygoers at point-blank range and looting their belongings during the bloodbath.
The chilling footage, obtained by CNN, captured the chaos that erupted when the terrorists descended on the Tribe of Nova event in the Negev Desert at the start of their invasion of Israel early Saturday.
Many terrified revelers tried to flee from the gunmen during the massacre, which left 260 people dead after the all-night rave outside Re’im.
In one clip, timestamped at 9:23 a.m. – almost three hours after the first explosions were heard at the festival — a terrorist brandishing a machine gun is seen yelling at a bleeding man and then leading him away.
It was unclear if the gunman had shot the man, whose fate was unknown.
Another man is seen in the video, which has no sound, lying on the ground at the back of a vehicle – before a second terrorist approaches and shoots him point-blank.
A clip timestamped at 12:09 p.m. then shows two terrorists going through the motionless man’s pockets. One of them removes an item and places it into his back pocket.
Moments later, a woman is seen being dragged out of the car and being led away as other terrorists empty a suitcase from another vehicle and begin pilfering it.
Five minutes later, the captured woman is seen with her hands in the air as shots are fired around her. Her fate also is unknown, according to CNN.
One of the people caught in the mayhem was Alexandre Look, a 33-year-old Canadian man who was on the phone with his parents as he tried to escape from the killers.
His parents told CBC that he and others sought shelter in a bunker without doors.
“And then I heard him tell his friends, ‘They’re coming back! There’s a lot of them! And then all I heard was a lot of gunshots, lots of rounds and then we heard nothing,” Look’s mother, Raquel Ohnona Look, told CBC.
Look’s parents said he died trying to shield others from the gunfire.
“Like a true warrior, he left as a hero wanting to protect the people he was with. Alex was a force of nature, endowed with a unique charisma and unparalleled generosity,” his dad, Alain Haim Look, said on social media.
“The world will never be the same without you. Goodbye my son, I love you and watch over us from above,” he added.
One of the people caught in the attack was Shani Louk, a 23-year-old tattoo artist from Germany, was last seen on camera dancing and laughing at the festival.
Hours later, Hamas gunmen had stripped her naked and reportedly murdered her. Her naked corpse was paraded through the streets on a flatbed truck, as terrorists screamed “Allahu Akbar” – “God is great.”
The Israeli death toll has risen to at least 900, most of them civilians. Another 2,500 were reported wounded, according to IDF international spokesperson Lt. Col. (Res.) Jonathan Conricus.
Meanwhile, at least 704 people have been killed in the Gaza Strip by Israel’s retaliatory strikes, including 140 children, and more than 3,720 others wounded, according to the Gaza Ministry of Health.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has announced “We are at war” — and vowed that Hamas would pay “a price it has never known.”
