The mother of a 26-year-old woman killed by terrorists at the Nova music festival on October 7 says she feels abandoned.

Oriya Ricardo was one of the over 360 people murdered at the Nova rave.

“Children were murdered simply because of criminal neglect. My heart goes out to the hostages, but they forgot us,” Hannie Ricardo tells Army Radio.

“Everyone is busy with the war and I understand the pain, but what about our pain? We want someone to engage with us, to say that the sacrifice we made is not for nothing,” she says.

Last month, Ricardo said her daughter was killed by “hateful” Hamas terrorists as she tried to escape.

“My girl tried to run away and cried, but they caught up to her after 100 meters from the car and shot her,” she told the New York Post.

The devastating terror assault on October 7 occurred amid a number of intelligence failures, and the organizers of the Nova festival were not alerted that security services had been warned of a potential attack.

The festival was held only five kilometers (3 miles) from the Gaza Strip.

After surging over the border, Hamas gunmen emptied rounds of gunfire, hand grenades and mortar fire into the revelers, in the biggest civilian massacre in Israeli history. They also took hostages.
