The Israeli army says soldiers near Al-Shifa Hospital have found the body of Yehudit Weiss, who was kidnapped from the kibbutz of Be’eri on October 7, APA reports citing CNN.

The body was recovered from what the army called a "structure" near the medical facility.

The statement offered no details of how she died, and it is not clear what condition the structure was in when the soldiers found the body. No details have been given about when she is believed to have died.

The Hostages and Missing Person’s Families Forum said Yehudit Weiss was a 65-year-old grandmother. Her husband, Shmuel, was killed in Hamas' attack on October 7.

The body has been brought back to Israeli territory, the army added, and the family is aware.
