For Yagil Yakov
11 Years old

On October 7th, terrorists broke into the Yaakov family's home. The brothers, Yagil and Or (16), who were alone at the time, hid in a safe room and managed to inform their mother about the terrorists' intrusion. Yagil, in a desperate plea, asked the terrorists not to take him as he is very young. Later, their father, Yair Yaakov, and his partner Mirav Yaakov, were also abducted to Gaza, as seen in a video released by the terrorist organization. Yagil suffers from a severe peanut allergy, putting his life in danger.

On November 27, as part of the 4th phase of the exchange deal, Yagil and Or returned to Israel, while their father remains in captivity.
