Arbel Yehud, 28, was taken hostage with her boyfriend, Ariel Cunio, from their Kibbutz Nir Oz home on October 7, when Hamas terrorists launched an attack, killing and kidnapping a quarter of the kibbutz residents.
Arbel’s brother, Dolev Yehud, was also taken hostage from the kibbutz.
The Yehud siblings are the third generation of their family living on the kibbutz.
Arbel lives on the kibbutz with Ariel and is known as the favorite aunt who loves everything about outer space and astronomy.
Her sister-in-law, Sigi, said that Arbel is an aunt who “always comes, always plays, always takes, always cares.”
“More and more women were released and Arbel was not on the lists,” said Sigi Yehud. “It is important to us that they know that Arbel is there and she needs to return, like all the women and children.”
