Jerusalemite Eliya Cohen, 26, was with his girlfriend, Ziv, at the Supernova desert rave when Hamas gunmen attacked, said his mother, Sigi Cohen.

The two tried to escape the falling rockets in their car, and were chased by terrorists with grenades and an RPG, and were both shot.

They two ran and hid, looked at each other and held hands, Sigi said, who was repeating what Ziv, who escaped, told her.

“Eliya whispered and said he was wounded but okay,” Sigi said.

The two were hidden by a pile of dead bodies, said Sigi. Ziv told Sigi that she felt Eliya being pulled up, and then placed on a pickup truck and driven away.

The family eventually found a photo of Eliya in Gaza, presumably taken captive.
