In their testimonies, survivors of the massacre said that while the Hamas terrorists were carrying out their atrocities, they heard women and children laughing and playing around their houses, and on the soccer court.
Col. Tal Koritzki commander of the 5th brigade has been leading his men in the battle in the area where the Hamas terrorists had departed from to carry out their massacre on Kibbutz Nir Oz, and other communities on the border. After gaining control of the area, the troops raised the flag of the Kibbutz on the local municipality.
"We found in the city's institutions: schools and community centers, full of weapons. Terrorists used them to fire at us but we came at them, very strong and their resistance crumbled," he said.

"Seeing the personal property that was stolen breaks our hearts but also heightens our resolve in our mission. We are doing our best so that the residents of the border communities would be able to sit in their living rooms, look out their windows and feel safe. We caused major damage to Hamas infrastructure here and found practically every other house to be the home of a terrorist. This is our life's mission," he said.
