Avinatan Or, 30, the second of seven brothers, was taken captive by Hamas terrorists on October 7, during a massive assault on the Supernova desert rave.

Or and his girlfriend Noa Argamani, hid for several hours, trying to call for rescue forces. They shared their location and let their friends and family know what was happening.

Yaacov Argamani, Noa’s father, tried to reach her and hours later got Avinatan on the phone, who said, “We’re ok, I’ll call back in 10 minutes.” The call never came.

Later that day, a Hamas video of Or and Argamani was posted on Telegram, showing Argamani on an all-terrain vehicle, as she calls in fear, crying, “Don’t kill me!” reaching out her arms to Or, who is being marched away from her, surrounded by at least three terrorists.

Or is an electrical engineer, a graduate of Ben-Gurion University. He lives in Tel Aviv, where he and Argamani were planning to move in together.

Or grew up in the West Bank town of Shilo, loves reading and hosting friends, and is described by his friends and family as someone who takes life easily, given his optimism and sense of fun.
