On Friday evening, after spending some time with his dad, Amit went to sleep at his mother’s house in Kibbutz Be’eri just a few meters away. The next day, Amit was taken hostage by Hamas terrorists who smashed the glass door at the back of the house and broke into the home’s shelter. At first he tried to resist, but when his mom pleaded for him not to, he put his hands up. He was last seen shoved into a black car.
