The news of Amedi's injury attracted international attention, prompting colleagues in the music and entertainment industry to request prayers for his recovery.
In November last year, Amadi wrote on Instagram that he was "prepared to stop performing and singing for a year to continue fighting," noting that "abandoning the people of the south and north again is not an option. Anything other than eliminating Hamas in Gaza and dealing fundamentally with Hezbollah in southern Lebanon poses an immediate danger to our children."
Throughout the months of fighting, a series of clips from the Gaza Strip featuring Amedi were made public. One video released last month, captured from multiple angles, showed the demolition of a school in the Shijaiyah neighborhood of Gaza.

This school was pinpointed as a hub for terrorist activities, including tunnel shafts used by Hamas terrorists, in addition to various weapons and explosive devices. Amedi is seen in the video counting down before the detonation.
"In a minute we will blow this building in memory of all the victims, our brothers and sisters who were massacred on October 7," he says in the video.
