In a powerful speech, an IDF officer addresses the significance of lighting the first Hanukkah candle in Palestine Square, Gaza, where Gazans “cheered as they murdered us [on October 7 massacre], where they humiliated our kidnapped”.

Describing it as the “evil square,” he vows to illuminate the dark city with the light of hope and peace.

The candle lighting ceremony, conducted by battle-wounded officers who returned to fight, symbolizes a resilient spirit in the face of adversity.
