Noa Argamani is seen in one of the first Hamas videos released during the massacre of hundreds of partygoers at the Supernova desert rave on October 7, seated on the back of a motorcycle behind her Hamas captor, screaming, “Don’t kill me!”

In the video, Argamani is stretching her arms out toward her boyfriend, Avinatan, who was also held by Hamas terrorists.

The couple had gone to the outdoor music event on Friday night, but didn’t mention their destination to Argamani’s parents, said her father, Yaakov Argamani, in a video made by Bring Them Home Now, the organization handling press and media for the Israeli families.

“She hinted something at me, I get that now,” said Yaakov Argamani. “She said, ‘Abba, it’s okay if I go anywhere?'”

Early Saturday morning, after attending holiday services, Yaakov Argamani said he went to check on Noa and Avinatan, and saw they weren’t in her bedroom.

He tried calling Noa, a second-year university student at Ben Gurion University but couldn’t reach her. About half an hour later, Avinatan called and told the Argamanis what had happened at the desert rave attended by hundreds of young Israelis.

“I worked and fought hard to have a daughter,” said Argamani, weeping, seated next to his wife, Leora. “What’s happening with her, how is she coping, such uncertainty.”

Hamas footage that showed up later the same day showed Argamani being held in Gaza, sipping from a cup of water.

“It’s a world crime,” said Leora Argamani. “She’s 26, she loves parties and life, she didn’t do anything wrong. Help us.”
