Kibbutz Kfar Aza: He survived the Hamas terror - now he shows tourists around his devastated home

Shahar Shnorman sits in a garden chair in front of his house in Kibbutz Kfar Aza during the conversation. Newspapers are on the table, birds are chirping, and the 62-year-old's wife, Ayelet Cohen, is cooking inside. The idyll seemed perfect if it weren't for the thunder of bombs being dropped at the same time on Gaza, three kilometers away. And if it weren't for the graffiti signs on the house walls that mean: The house is free of terrorists. On October 7, Hamas murdered families in their beds here and shot friends of Shahar Shnorman. Of the 700 residents, more than 100 died on October 7th and others were kidnapped.
