A heartwarming video shows the return of five-year-old Emilia Aloni — freed from Gaza on November 24 along with her mother after being held there by terrorists for seven weeks — returning to her kindergarten for the first time.

 

Accompanied by her grandfather and by an unidentified woman filming the scene, the girl is embraced enthusiastically by the kindergarten teacher who says she wants to start singing in celebration.

The girl is then welcomed and hugged by fellow children.

“I missed you,” say some.

“I haven’t seen you for a very long time,” says a girl.

“I saw you on television,” a boy remarks.
