Shani Louk's photos from Instagram, left, match the photos of the "female Israeli soldier" Hamas paraded around in the bed of a truck Saturday morning in Gaza.
Update 11/16/23: IDF says it has killed one of the terrorists who paraded Shani Louk’s naked body through the streets of Gaza on October 7th. https://www.smobserved.com/story/2023/11/17/news/idf-kills-terrorist-who-paraded-shani-louks-naked-body-through-the-streets-of-gaza-on-october-7th/7924.html
Update 10.30.23 Israel’s president says Shani Louk’s skull has been found, decapitated from her body. https://www.smobserved.com/story/2023/10/31/news/israeli-troops-find-decapitated-head-of-hamas-hostage-shani-louk-in-gaza-as-they-advance-on-hamas/7901.html
The woman seen on video in the back of a pick-up truck driven by Palestinian terrorists through cheering crowds in Gaza has been identified. Shani Louk, 30, is a German citizen visiting Israel to attend the music festival for peace held near the Gaza border fence. Louk's leg tattoos (see photos below), clearly match those seen on Instagram.
Paraded around in the back of a bus by Hamas in Gaza, the naked woman was reported by Hamas to be a dead female Israeli soldier. Louk's body does not appear to be dead, because the pallor of her skin is not that of a corpse. Some news outlets are reporting that she bears fatal wounds in the images and is dead. But her safety or status is unknown. Except to say that if she is alive, she is now a hostage in Hamas led Gaza.
"The girl that has been kidnapped by the #Hamas is a 🇩🇪German national that was visiting the music festival. Her name is #ShaniLouk who goes by the name shanukkk on Instagram,"tweeted @Durantham
"I am a Muslim. And this is not in accordance with Islam. Women and children are not touched in war. I'm so sorry, I'm praying for you. Those who did this are not muslims." Posted M-Ate on Shanukkk's instagram.
Shani Louk's photos from Instagram match the photos of the woman Hamas paraded around on the back of a truck Saturday morning in Gaza.
The Hamas invasion of Israel, which began Friday night at 11 pm PST, has killed 300 Israeli's and wounded more than 1100. Israel has retaliated, and there are also hundreds of casualties in Gaza. A number of hostages were taken, including the 90 year old aunt of the IDF defense minister, and a 7 year old boy seen on video being abused by Gazan kids his age.
Israeli PM Netanyahu has vowed retaliation and urged calm. Iran's parliament praised the "blessed event," while it has been roundly condemned around the world by Western leaders including US President Joseph Biden and British PM Rishi Sunak.

Last month, Louk posted to Instagram: "In the nature is more easy for me to connect to my spirit. The universe and my god, the sea the trees have they're own unique singing so we pray together, God will give you all you ask for ❤️🙏🏽”.
