The sister of Rimon Kirsht Buchshtav, 36, who was released from Gaza yesterday after she was kidnapped from Kibbutz Nirim on October 7, posts photos on Facebook of the moment they saw her again.
Kirsht Buchshtav was held hostage by terrorists in Gaza for 53 days.
“Part of the war is over – Rimon returned home! Healthy and whole!” writes Nili Kirsht-Levi. “Now we will continue to fight for the return of Yagev and the rest of the kidnapped!”
Rimon’s husband Yagev Buchshtav, 34, remains a hostage in Gaza. The couple met in high school and then reconnected years later, marrying in 2021.
They were hiding in the safe room of their Nirim home on the morning of October 7. Rimon texted her family that she saw fire and terrorists shooting outside “everywhere.”
She then sent her mother one last voice message — Rimon’s parents were also sheltering in a nearby community — “I love you, Mom. I’m so sorry I can’t be there with you. I love you.”
