A five-year-old girl, Emilia Aloni, and her mother were held by Hamas for seven weeks after being taken from the kibbutz of Nir Oz near the Gaza border.

They have officially been released, bringing a moment of joy to the community scarred by the October 7 massacre.

Around 20 people were killed in Nir Oz that day, and about 80 were taken hostage. (Trending: Joe Biden Admits He’s ‘Not Sure’ About Running If Trump Wasn’t)

“I missed you,” classmates said.

“I haven’t seen you for a very long time,” a girl added.

War correspondent Itai Anghel described the devastation, likening it to a nightmare and expressing uncertainty about the community’s recovery.

“You see hell,” said Anghel.

“It’s like you visit a nightmare. I remember that’s what I felt when I came back from Rwanda, the genocide, when I came back from Syria, Iraq, when I witnessed what ISIS did.”

“And I felt it in Nir Oz. I mean, you see houses completely burned. You see bodies completely burned, mutilated,” he said.

“You know, I can express myself pretty good, but I cannot express the smell; it’s something that sticks and stays with you. This is horrible.”

“You see the handle of the safe room in every house. It’s twisted. It’s a sign of the people inside who tried to give a fight in order to not let the Hamas terrorists enter,” he said.

“I want to believe that they will come back because houses are gone. You can build houses,” he said.

“The question is whether you can rebuild a soul.”

The return of Emilia brought a sense of celebration and hope, but the scars of the attack continue to impact the community.
