Abdallah Aljamal, A Supposed Journalist, Was Holding Three of the Four Hostages in Family Home

Yesterday I was seeing posts on social media claiming that our hostages rescued by special forces from the central Gaza Strip over the weekend had been held at the home of Abdallah Aljamal, a journalist. This was primarily based on the tweet of Ramy Abdu, head of the Euro-Med Human Rights Monitor:

I held back on posting about it because Ramy Abdu is not exactly Mr Reliable. Besides, if it was true, all we knew was the IDF entered his house as part of the rescue operation. It could have been that the hostages were held elsewhere, but the IDF needed to go through his house to get there with the element of surprise.

Since then, it has been confirmed. And surprise, surprise, the “journalist” was also a Hamas-hole.

Three of four hostages rescued by special forces from the central Gaza Strip over the weekend were being held at the home of Abdallah Aljamal, a Palestinian journalist and member of the Hamas terror group, the Israeli military confirmed on Sunday.

Rumors had circulated on social media after Ramy Abdu, head of the Euro-Med Human Rights Monitor, said in a post on X that soldiers had climbed into the Aljamals’ home during the raid in Nuseirat on Saturday, killing several members of the family, including Abdallah and his father, Dr. Ahmed Aljamal.

Abdu published an image ostensibly from the Aljamals’ home alongside his post, though he made no mention of the possibility that hostages were held there.

Abdallah Aljamal was previously a spokesman for the Hamas-run labor ministry in Gaza and has contributed to several news outlets in the past.

Amid the war in Gaza, numerous articles by Aljamal had been published by the Palestine Chronicle outlet, including while hostages Almog Meir Jan, Andrey Kozlov and Shlomi Ziv were allegedly being held captive in his home. The fourth hostage, Noa Argamani, was rescued from a nearby building in Saturday’s operation.

One of his “reports” for the Palestine Chronicle during this time is titled My House Will Always Be Open – Stories from the Gaza Siege, a title which reads extra creepy knowing what we do now.

Besides the Palestine Chronicle, Aljamal had an author page on Al Jizz, which has now mysteriously disappeared, but which the IDF “rescued” from the memory hole:

Naturally, Al Jizz denies it.

Al-Jazeera’s Jerusalem bureau chief Omar al-Walid has denied claims made by Israel’s military that journalist Abdullah Al-Jamal worked for the outlet and held Israeli hostages in his home. In a statement, al-Walid said, “This man is not from Al-Jazeera, and he did not work for Al-Jazeera at all, and he is not listed as working for Al-Jazeera neither now nor in the past.”

“We do not know him, and all the rumors that have been spread are empty of content and not true at all,” he added. The Arabic-language news network plans to sue those who spread rumors of current connections between Al-Jazeera and al-Walid, the Times of Israel reported.

Let them try suing. Here’s the web archive of the page in case they want to claim the IDF photoshopped it. Besides, it is not like they have ever hidden their support for terrorists before.

Meanwhile, Aljamal was listed as a journalist by Hamas in the below press release from it so-called Government Media Office:

Hamas Government Media Office:

The number of martyr journalists has risen to 150 male and female journalists.

The number of journalist martyrs has risen to 150 male and female journalists since the start of the genocide war on the Gaza Strip, after the ascending of fellow journalists:

Martyr journalist Abdullah Ahmed Al-Jamal, editor and journalist at Palestine Now Agency.

Martyr journalist Ahlam Ezzat Al-Ajla, press correspondent at Family Happiness magazine.

Martyr journalist Dina Abdullah Al-Batniji, journalist at Al-Thuraya Media Foundation.

We ask Allah Almighty for mercy, acceptance and heaven for our fellow journalists, and for their families and the Palestinian journalistic family patience and solace.

This just goes to remind us how unreliable their casualty figures are, considering their definition of a civilian clearly includes terrorists and those complicit in terrorism.

As for how many Gazan civilians are complicit:
