In a shocking incident on October 7, Natali Yohanan, a 38-year-old mother in Nir Oz, found her unlocked home invaded by a Gazan woman who proceeded to make herself at home for hours.

The trespasser entertained armed terrorists, turned off the safe room’s electricity, and looted the house, leaving Yohanan and her family trapped in unbearable conditions.

The harrowing experience shattered Yohanan’s belief in coexistence, reflecting a grim reality faced by many survivors of the surprise attack by Hamas from Gaza.

The incident raises questions about the complexities of the conflict and its impact on civilians on both sides, leaving a lasting trauma that challenges the hope for peace.
