Victim of Terrorism: David’s Story

David, the leader of a kibbutz near Gaza, was one of the first to realize that his community was under attack from Hamas on October 7. Early that morning, following a massive bombing, David was walking his dog. Suddenly, a caravan of 15 trucks, filled with heavily armed Hamas militants, was headed his way. As a trained soldier, what he saw shocked him.

He observed, “They were very equipped, they knew the area—they understood exactly what they were doing. They’d come to kill and slaughter. I’ve been in fighting; I’ve been in combat. This was not that. This was complete madness.”

Waiting for the Israeli army to arrive, David spent the whole day fighting terrorists, protecting his neighborhood, and putting out fires. Miraculously, he and his family survived. But their kibbutz needed help—and we are so thankful friends like you came to their rescue!
