Kibbutz Beri, Southern Israel, October 7th 2023

On October 7, 2023, Kibbutz Be’eri, located near the Gaza Strip, witnessed a horrific onslaught. Approximately 70 terrorists from Hamas launched a devastating attack on this Israeli farming community. The brutality of this assault led to the death of at least 130 individuals, including vulnerable women, children, and infants, making up about 10% of Be’eri’s population. This event was not just a loss of lives; numerous homes within the community were also set ablaze.

The Assault’s Execution and the Community’s Plight

The attack, led by Palestinian Islamist terror group Hamas, Abed al Rahman of the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades’ Nuseirat Battalion, began in the early hours, approximately at 6:30 am, with rockets targeting the kibbutz. The attackers, employing motorcycles and vehicles for their incursion, overpowered the entrance’s security, marking the start of a house-to-house rampage.

During this chaos, many inhabitants sought refuge in safe rooms, but these sanctuaries were breached, leading to further fatalities. In a brutal turn, 50 people were taken hostage in a dining facility, while others were abducted to the Gaza Strip. The situation intensified into a standoff when the Israeli Defense Forces intervened.

A Humanitarian Perspective: Accounts of Atrocities

Yossi Landau, leading the regional relief organization ZAKA, shared distressing observations with Sky News. His findings indicated that approximately 80% of the recovered bodies displayed signs of torture. Among the most harrowing discoveries were two groups of children, each comprising ten, who were found tied and burned to death. These details underline the barbarity of the assault on Be’eri.
