Asher Moskowitz, of the United Hatzalah first responder group, published a video of himself speaking to a camera, delivering his witness account.
In it, he claims he saw the remains of a baby who had been baked to death in an oven at kibbutz Kfar Aza, where more than 100 civilians were killed.
‘The sights that we saw were horrendous,’ he says, explaining that he was among a group that saw corpses arriving for identification in the aftermath of the attack.
‘My name is Asher Moskowitz, UH333, deputy head of the El’ad branch and an active member of our holy work of saving lives,’ he says, introducing himself. He is shown with his back to a door, wearing a yellow high-vis police vest.
An Israeli first responder to the October 7 terror attack has claimed that Hamas terrorists roasted a baby in an oven, having seen corpses in the aftermath of the attack
‘On the fourth day of the war, I visited the Shura base. I came to ensure the medical care of the families who were told to get information about the fate of their loved ones and were given a place outside the base to wait.’
He then says that during the day, his group were told five or six trucks with many bodies from Kfar Aza were due to arrive ‘that were unfortunately horribly disfigured with severe injuries, including people who were burned alive’.
He continues: ‘We went to the base to lend a hand and help.
‘I, as a volunteer member of the Achi, which is the Zaka branch of the police, came with a few friends and we assisted and carried dozens of bodies from the trucks to the identification rooms inside the base.
‘The sights that we saw were horrendous. We saw dozens of scorched bodies so severe that the coroners said it would be difficult to identify them, and luckily they had DNA samples to use for identification.
‘As we continued our work, to our great chagrin, we also carried off… small bags with body parts, really small bags.
‘Among them,’ he says, ‘was a small bag which we assumed held either body parts or the body of a baby and we put it in one of the rooms there’.

He claims that he was told by officials working to identify victims of the attack that they believed a baby had been ‘cooked’ in an oven by Hamas terrorists
Continuing, he says: ‘As they opened the bag there was a gruesome sight, what appeared to be a baby.’ He said the ‘body was really swollen [and had] what looked like a heating element attached’.
‘They told us afterwards, after we left the room and they had worked on the body to identify it [that] after the terrorists murdered the parents in a very gruesome way at home, they then took the baby and literally put him into the kitchen oven.
‘While the baby was still alive they put him into the oven and they cooked the baby alive,’ he claims. ‘The body was burned and unfortunately, as far as I could see, the body became swollen as a result [a] heating element of the oven became attached to the body itself.
‘We must show the world these gruesome sights and to tell the world that it impossible to deny what these savages did,’ he says.
Mr Moskowitz’s testimony is the latest in a series of gruesome claims from Israel and Israelis over the barbaric actions of Hamas terrorists on October 7.
Previous accusations against the terror group have included the beheading of babies and the killing of pregnant mothers.
Earlier this week, the head of Israel’s volunteer EMS squad Eli Beer made a similar claim to that of Mr Moskowitz’s, saying Hamas terrorists cut an unborn baby from a mother, stabbed it, and put it in an oven.
‘We saw a little baby in an oven,’ he told a crowd at the Republican Jewish Coalition in the United States. ‘These b******s put these babies in an oven and put on the oven. We found the kid a few hours later.’

Last month, Israel released harrowing images of tiny babies the country said had been murdered and burned by Hamas gunmen.
One appalling image shows the small body of a baby, who couldn’t be more than 12 months old, lying on a now bloodied white body bag that was too large for it.
The little child’s babygrow dotted with flowers is covered in blood after the rampaging terrorists unleashed horrors that defy belief.
Another two photographs released by Israel show the blackened and charred bodies of two babies who were murdered when they stormed their homes. Their bodies are so disfigured it’s impossible to make out where their arms and legs would have been.
MailOnline chose to publish heavily blurred versions of the images to show the horrors that Hamas terrorists unleashed on hundreds of Israelis after they stormed over the border from Gaza on Saturday.
The release of the images came as apparently verified photographs of other babies beheaded by the ruthless terrorists in the Kfar Aza kibbutz just a mile away from the border were ‘confirmed’ by journalists at the Jerusalem Post.
The Kfar Aza kibbutz was one of the first Israeli settlements to be targeted on the morning of October 7 by Hamas.
It was there that the terrorists, wielding assault rifles and grenades, ruthlessly shot dead screaming families as they begged for their lives before burning their homes.
The first wave of 70 terrorists had roared towards the quiet kibbutz on motorbikes after tearing through the border wire a mile away, while others paraglided over Israel’s unsuspecting defences from Gaza.
As soon as they arrived, the heavily armed fighters attacked the compound from four directions – starting with the ‘baby quarter’ where the young families lived.

The brutal attack against Israel has resulted in the country declaring war on Hamas.
The IDF launched a bombardment of the Gaza strip – where the terrorists came from – and is now in the early stages of a ground invasion.
On Thursday, Israeli troops fought with Hamas militants on the edges of Gaza City as the Palestinian death toll from IDF strikes rose above 9,000.
With no end in sight after nearly four weeks of war, US and Arab leaders raised pressure on Israel to ease its siege and – at least briefly – halt its attacks in order to aid the 2.2 million civilians living in the small 140-square-mile territory.
