Bruna Valeanu, a 24-year-old gal from Brazil, just moved to Israel. She was having a blast at the Supernova music fest down south when bad guys from Hamas hit, taking out many, including Bruna, says Norah O’Donnell from “CBS Evening News.”
They set a funeral for Tuesday but didn’t know a lot of faces. For a proper Jewish service, you need at least 10 people, known as a minyan. They weren’t sure if they’d get that for Bruna.
So, they shot a message on the net, asking if 10 souls could show up, O’Donnell spilled on “CBS Mornings.”
But they got way more than they bargained for. Loads of people turned up for Valeanu, O’Donnell says.
A lady who came for the minyan chatted with the Jerusalem Post about the mad traffic to the burial spot. ” My friend and I went after they wrote that there would be no minyan,” Orit shared, just giving her first name. ” During the trip, Waze added more and more travel time even though the road was open, and we didn’t understand why. Towards the cemetery, there was a very big traffic jam and we thought there might be a lot of funerals, we didn’t realize that they were all coming for Bruna.”
At least 260 people lost their lives. And that might jump up, says the Associated Press. Some there shared how outta the blue rockets and gunshots blasted, as per Israel’s Channel 12.
Bruna’s sis, Nathalia, chatted with the Jerusalem Post. She said Bruna got split from her crew at the fest. “The last thing we got was her location via text. It was a dangerous location, where terrorists came armed in trucks, tanks, and motorcycles.” She said she heard a lot of gunshots and had a lot of people injured. And she was in the middle of the woods, but it was a place that was kind of fenced in.”
Some people at the gig got grabbed by Hamas. One was a student, Noa Argamani. Snaps of her being caught buzzed online. Her dad, Yaakov Argamani, told CBS, ” She is an amazing person. A sweet child.”
A DJ-wannabe’s people, who lost touch with him at the fest, spoke to CBS. They’ve chatted with the cops, but still clueless about their boy’s spot.
“We need everyone who can do something to bring us back our boy. That’s what we need. We need someone to bring us back our boy,” Laor Abramov’s ma, Michal Halev, told CBS’s Jericka Duncan.
After Hamas’s Saturday chaos, a ton of people in Israel are gone, the bigwigs said. And the same sad story in Gaza, with Israel’s sky hits.
