Israeli hostage Amiram Cooper, 85, is in critical condition after being denied medication, abandoned by the Red Cross, and starved by Hamas.

He was one of the founders of Kibbutz Nir Oz and is among several hostages held by Hamas.

“One out of four residents of Kibbutz Nir Oz was either murdered or abducted. In the recent video released by Hamas, three elderly members of the kibbutz were filmed. They were emaciated, sick, weak and extremely pale from being kept in the dark,” Amiram’s daughter-in-law Dahlia Cooper stated.

“One of the hostages shown in the film is Amiram Cooper, who turned 85 years old in captivity. He is one of the oldest hostages. He has not received any of his medication which he needs to survive.”

“My husband Rotem provided medication to the Red Cross for Amiram and other hostages. The Red Cross refused to transfer it to them.”

“In the video Amiram’s lips were blue, a sign of lack of oxygen from being kept in 20ft underground tunnels. The terrorists took his glasses and Amiram is completely blind without them. He is so thin and we barely recognized him.”

“He is an economist and a poet. He was one of the founders of Nir Oz and has lived there for over 60 years. He published several poetry books and wrote musicals as well.”

“Our family is extremely worried about Amiram and all other hostages’ health and conditions after 82 days in captivity. They are living in horrific conditions and we need to get them out immediately. Time is running out!”

The Israeli government believes that military pressure on Hamas may lead to the release of the hostages.

At least 120 Israelis, including elderly individuals and women, are believed to be imprisoned by Hamas in Gaza.
