Roni «said that they were holding him prisoner in a building that later collapsed due to the bombings, he tried to escape, it was like in a movie, for four days he hid around there and was alone, in the end the inhabitants of Gaza captured him and they returned him to the hands of terrorists”, said Yelena Magid, reporting her nephew’s words. «Roni tried to reach the border, but he didn’t have the means to understand where he was and where to escape. I asked him how do you feel? Do you have nightmares at night? He told me, ‘Listen, I have nightmares, but everything’s fine.’

Yulia Kariboi, Roni’s sister, wrote on Facebook: «I have no words to thank everyone, for the support, the concern, the help, the prayers. We made it, Roni came home. Walking, smiling and laughing. Just as strong as he always was.” «But we are not finished, many of our other brothers are left behind. Let’s continue to fight for them. We won’t stop until everyone is back sleeping in their beds next to their families. Everyone has to go back.”
