On October 7th, 2023 at 06:30 AM, thousands of rockets launched from Gaza, pierced though the skies, marking the launch of a planned and coordinated attack by Hamas terrorists on multiple targets in Israel. Among them - a yearly techno music festival held just a few kilometers from the Gaza Strip over 3,500 young revelers in attendance.

Soon the festival grounds turned into a scene of horror: More than 370 people were brutally killed, hundreds wounded and 40 kidnapped and taken as hostages.

In total nearly 1,200 people were murdered on that fateful Saturday and 260 kidnapped into the Gaza Strip. That day marks the start of the war that continues to this day.
