Surviving Hamas: A Benjamin Hall Special Premieres April 9 on FOX Nation

FOX Nation is set to debut a two-part documentary series, “Surviving Hamas: A Benjamin Hall Special,” on April 9, 2024. The series will be hosted by FOX News correspondent Benjamin Hall and will focus on the devastating aftermath of the October 7, 2023, terror attack on Israel by Hamas.

The series will consist of two hour-long episodes, each exploring the impact of the attack on individuals in the Israeli community. Benjamin Hall, who himself was severely wounded in Ukraine in 2022, visits some of the hardest-hit communities in southern Israel and provides updates as the 200-day milestone nears.

Lauren Petterson, president of FOX Nation, commented on the announcement: “As we approach the sixth-month anniversary of the October 7th attack on Israel, Ben’s unique perspective provides a powerful series that explores grief, resilience, and survival through the lens of those most closely impacted.”

The first episode, “Maya’s Story,” centers on 21-year-old Maya Regev, who was attending the Supernova Music Festival near the Gaza border on October 6, 2023. The festival turned into a nightmare when Hamas terrorists struck, killing over 400 individuals and abducting more than 40, including Regev. Despite being shot in the leg, Regev remained composed throughout her ordeal and eventually shared her harrowing experience with Hall after her release.

The second episode shines a light on the devastation of the Nir Oz kibbutz in southern Israel. Hamas militants invaded the community, killing and abducting residents while setting homes ablaze. Hall interviews survivors and their families, shedding light on the tragic massacre that ravaged this tight-knit community.

Benjamin Hall’s own experience of surviving a deadly attack adds a layer of depth to his reporting. In March 2022, Hall was catastrophically injured while covering the war in Ukraine alongside his colleagues, FOX News photojournalist Pierre Zakrzewski and Ukrainian journalist and fixer Oleksandra “Sasha” Kuvshynova. Tragically, Zakrzewski and Kuvshynova were killed in the attack, and Hall sustained life-altering injuries, including the loss of his leg and foot, the loss of the use of one hand, and the loss of sight in one eye.

After an arduous recovery, Hall returned to work in 2023 and traveled to Ukraine to interview President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. During this trip, Hall was awarded the Order of Merit, III class, by Zelenskyy for his “outstanding personal contribution to strengthening interstate cooperation, support for Ukraine’s independence, and territorial integrity.”

Hall’s journey back to the field and his commitment to journalism are a testament to his resilience and determination. His unique perspective, shaped by his own trauma, adds a powerful dimension to his reporting and provides a voice to those impacted by conflict.
