The Full Testimony

Testimony of 

Erez Arieli

Erez and his family sat in the safe room without reception after the terrorists entered the kibbutz. Erez went out for breaks in the hallway of the house to catch up and realized that the terrorists had entered the home of his next-door neighbors when other houses in his block were set on fire. He armed himself with a knife in case they broke into their house as well. Only in the evening did they escape and evacuate In their private car. While driving on the dark road to the north, they first noticed the remains of burned cars, bodies lying on the side of the road, and a burned Israeli tank. Only then did they begin to understand the scale of the disaster. Two months after 7/10, Erez was diagnosed with a rare lung cancer, which may have erupted as a result of the trauma.
