New footage from October 7 shows how Hamas terrorists attacked a packed public bomb shelter near the Nova festival near Re’im, hurling grenades at partygoers who were sheltering from rocket attacks.

The video was taken from the dashcam of a nearby car and published by the South First Responders group on Telegram.

It shows how an unarmed and off-duty soldier, Staff Sgt. Aner Elyakim Shapiro, managed to toss back seven of the grenades, saving those inside the shelter.

The eighth grenade fatally wounded him.

At least seven of those who had taken refuge inside the shelter survived.

The graphic video also shows the moment one of the Israeli civilians attempts to flee from the bomb shelter, and is gunned down by the terrorists.
