Three-year-old Yahel has finally returned home after 50 days of captivity.

We wish to extend our heartfelt embrace to our dear friend and colleague, Aviv Hevron, who has finally had the joyous opportunity to hug his niece, along with five other family members, including his sister.

“It was an emotionally charged night. Many of us couldn’t sleep, overwhelmed by the emotions of the reunion,” he says.

It’s hard to fathom the joy of this moment, just as it’s difficult to imagine the nightmare of the past 50 days. We will not rest until the 200 others who were also kidnapped are freed.
