Following the Hamas attack on October 7th, 2023, a tour around the Gaza Strip offers a poignant and eye-opening experience. It unfolds the chronicles of the Hamas attack, their atrocities, and the resilience of local Israeli communities.

Touring Sderot

The first stop is Sderot, a city that has long been a target of Hamas rocket attacks for over 20 years. Reinforced bus stops and bomb shelters have become an integral part of daily life here, serving as a stark reminder of the constant rocket threat. Must-sees include the demolished Police station and panoramic views of Gaza from “Kobi’s Hill”.

Visiting Nova Music Festival Site

Set in a forest about 20 km south of Sderot, a planned music festival turned into a devastating event. This trance music festival, just 5 kilometers from the Gaza Strip, was also targeted in a Hamas attack, who murdered 364 and abducted more than 40. The site is now a memorial ground, a place for reflection and remembrance for the victims.

Reaching other Sites around Gaza Strip

Near Moshav Tkuma is the display of burnt cars. The charred vehicles serve as a haunting testament to the destruction caused by the Hamas in their attack on 7.10.23. Nearby, it is possible to visit a rest station for Israeli soldiers, meeting those who serve on the front lines.

A visit to any of the Kibbutzim in the area is highly limited, but, if possible, it is a moving experience. These communities still bear the scars of the Hamas attack on October 7th, 2023, with burnt houses serving as a testament to the barbaric and brutal attack.
