Alon Ohel (23)

Alon Ohel is everyone's best friend, a happy and always optimistic boy. He has always been connected to music, he is a gifted pianist and planned to start studying music at the Rimon School of Music. A month before he was kidnapped, he returned from a six-month trip in the East, after which he planned to move to Tel Aviv with his best friends. The thing that Alon loves the most is eating good and fine food. He goes nuts for desserts, meat, sandwiches and pastries. Alon's favorite dessert is Cinnabon.

Alon was kidnapped from the party in Re’im. He arrived at the party with four friends at half past five in the morning, shortly before the attack began. Through messaging with him, the family members understood from him that Alon was in a shelter and everything was fine. According to testimonies, when the shooting started, they got into a car and drove to hide in a shelter, where the terrorists threw grenades and killed many, including two of Alon's friends. The terrorists entered and pulled him and other people into a car. Alon celebrated his 23rd birthday in Hamas captivity.
