There's this story circulating on Reddit about a family of an Israeli Arab killed by Hamas on the 7th of October placing a bounty for information about his killers.

The family of Osama Abu Essa from Tel Sheva is offering a reward of one million dollars to anyone who brings information about the terrorists who were recorded brutally abusing him before murdering him. Abu Asa's abuse was recorded by a car camera shortly before he was executed. His family member: "We will get to them even if it takes 50 years. Revenge will come and it will be cruel"

The Bedouin Abu-Asa clan living in the Negrev desert - (armed and very dangerous) put a price of one million dollars on the head of the Hamas terrorist who killed their relative Osama Abu-Asa on October 7, during the invasion of southern Israel. In the video these are the same Bedouins. According to their customs, they must find and kill the killers.

[Note one source claims a bounty for information about the killers, the other for killing them]

Are either of these true?

    You need to link to it for notability purposes. Social media claims are [typically] judged in terms of views/votes here, whether they qualify as notable. Commented Nov 7, 2023 at 20:04

    Don't post images here. Put the link behind a warning, so people can choose to view them. But I haven't found anyone saying this despite a brief search.

  • The story was published, so I assume we can even trace it to some Hebrew source. Here is a second hand claim in Russian: t.me/s/nevzorovtv?before=11928

1 Answer 1


Yes, his brother, Joad Abu Asa, talks about the reward offer for information about the killers on a recorded interview with Ynet, an Israeli news site. Where he says that they can get the $1 million to even people in the Gaza Strip.

    As it stands, this is a rather poor answer. All we know is that "here" says it's true. Actual quotations and names of people or organizations would make it useful. Commented Nov 8, 2023 at 18:33
