Hanan Yablonka, 42, is presumed taken hostage to Gaza on October 7 by Hamas terrorists who attacked the Supernova desert rave, killing 364 people and abducting at least 40.
Yablonka was with four friends in his vehicle. Later, one friend was found dead in his car, another in the field and two others in the hiding place they had found nearby.
Divorced and with two kids, ages 12 and 9, he’s someone who loves sports and music, said his mother, Vered Yablonka.
Yablonka had eaten dinner with his parents on Friday night, October 6, and then gone out with friends for another friend’s birthday. They headed north at first, and then turned around at Hadera and decided to go to the outdoor trance rave in the Negev.
“He’ll come home,” said his father, Reuven Yablonka, in a TV interview.
While the government has offered its support to the family, there is no concrete evidence of Yablonka having been taken hostage to Gaza, said his sister, Avivit, in another interview.
“He’s considered missing,” said Avivit.
