Evacuated Be’eri residents find soldiers broke into their nursery — to water the plants

The owners of a small plant nursery in Kibbutz Be’eri, one of the worst devastated communities in the October 7 Hamas onslaught, thought they had lost their business when they were forced to evacuate.

“Be’eri had a thriving nursery for household plants. A little blossoming paradise that made everyone happy,” owner Avivit John writes on social media.

“When we were forced to evacuate, it was clear that all the plants would dry up. Rain does not get inside and the watering was done manually. After two days without water, the plants start to wither,” she says.

“Now we found a small miracle in Be’eri,” she writes, posting a video of the thriving nursery they found when they returned several weeks later and a sign explaining it.

“Sorry we broke into the nursery, we had to water the plants. With love, the soldiers,” the sign said.
