Video: British daughter of freed hostage Yocheved Lifshitz, 85, reveals her mother’s ‘hell’ at the hands of Hamas
Yocheved Lifshitz says the IDF ‘didn’t take Hamas threat seriously’ when her area was targeted before October 7 attack
Yocheved Lifshitz, 85, told a press conference: ‘We were the scapegoats, they had warned us three weeks before but the masses came to our roads and burnt our fields, they sent balloons with fire and they burnt our fields – the IDF didn’t take that seriously.
‘On Saturday morning, everything was quiet and then there was huge shelling on our community. It exploded the huge fence that was there, they opened the gates of the kibbutz and entered on masses, that was very very tough, I have all these images in my mind.’
