Noa Marciano Wiki – Noa Marciano Biography
Israeli Defense Forces soldier Noa Marciano appeared in a video released by Hamas on Monday in which she provided identifying information, said she was detained in Gaza and pleaded with the Israeli army to stop bombing the area. The video, which the Israeli military denounced as “psychological terrorism,” then showed images of Marciano’s lifeless body. On Tuesday, the IDF said it now recognizes Marciano as a “fallen soldier held captive by a terrorist group,” the Times of Israel reported. After the video was released on Monday, IDF representatives went to the Marciano family home to inform them about the video and the teenager’s death. “Our hearts go out to the Marciano family, whose daughter, Noa, was brutally kidnapped by the terrorist organization Hamas,” the Israeli military said in a statement. “The IDF and all relevant agencies will continue to support her family, as well as all families of the hostages and missing persons. “We are using all means, both intelligence and operational, to bring the hostages home,” the military said. The IDF condemned Hamas for its constant use of “psychological terror,” including through the dissemination of videos and photographs of hostages.
Noa Marciano age was not mentioned.
The military added that it made the declaration of Marciano’s death based on intelligence information, not the Hamas video. Marciano was part of Unit 414 of the Combat Intelligence Collection Corps. She was serving at the Nahal Oz IDF base and living in Modiin when Hamas invaded the Jewish country. Her mother, Adi Marciano, had been traveling around the world since then to advocate for her release, as well as the freedom of other Israeli hostages held in Gaza. In an interview with Ynet last month, Ella Adi Ella said that she wanted her daughter to know “that I miss her and I want her to come home.” Marciano was one of approximately 240 people taken hostage by Hamas terrorists during last month’s surprise raid, in which 1,200 people were killed. After the horrific October 7 attack, Israel declared war on Hamas, killing more than 11,000 people in Gaza since then, according to Hamas-linked health officials in Gaza. Last month, Hamas freed four hostages and the IDF rescued one. The warring sides are reportedly close to a deal that would see the exchange of Palestinian prisoners for most Israeli women and children held hostage in Gaza, as well as the promise of a five-day truce in the conflict.
