Dolev Yehud, 35, his sister Arbel Yehud, 28 and Arbel’s boyfriend, Ariel Cunio, were all taken hostage together from Kibbutz Nir Oz on October 7, when Hamas terrorists launched an attack, killing and kidnapping a quarter of the kibbutz residents.
The Yehud siblings are the third generation of their family living on the kibbutz.
Dolev is married with four children; his wife, Sigal, gave birth to their fourth child while he is held captive.
He’s known as a family man, a volunteer medic at Magen David Adom and United Hatzalah, and a lover of standup and podcasts about comedy.
Arbel, his younger sister, lives on the kibbutz with her boyfriend, Ariel, and is known as the favorite aunt who loves everything about outer space and astronomy.
