Hostage from Gaza rescued by IDF has no medical rehab plan


Prof. Hagai Levine, chair of the Israeli Association of Public Health Physicians, said at the beginning of a state control committee meeting on Monday that there is no rehabilitation plan in place to treat freed hostage Noa Argamani.

Argamani, the woman whose image was the very representation of the fight to bring the hostages back home, was rescued from the Gaza Strip a little over a week ago in a complex operation coordinated between the Israeli Counterterrorism Unit, the IDF, and the Shin Bet.

“I visited Noa Argamani last night and I was amazed to discover that there is no rehabilitation plan for her,” Levine said.

“Even after their return, the [kidnapped] are being abandoned,” he posed. Committee chairperson MK Mickey Levy (Yesh Atid) responded, “These are serious accusations. I will urgently contact the Health Minister (Uriel Buso [Shas]) to find out why no such plan is in place.”

Who is Noa Argamani?

Argamani was kidnapped from the Nova music festival on October 7 by Hamas terrorists alongside her boyfriend, Avinatan Or. The video capturing their kidnapping, in which Noa is seen screaming in fear, became one of the symbols of the war.

She was rescued last week together with now-former hostages Almog Meir Jan, Shlomi Ziv, and Andrey Kozlov.

Shortly thereafter she was released from Sourasky Medical Center in Tel Aviv after undergoing a series of tests as well as medical and psychological evaluations.

Her mother, Liora, is hospitalized at the same medical facility.
