April 7, 1980
On the brink of the second Passover holiday in 1980, a team of five commandos affiliated with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) breaches the northern border fence and infiltrates Kibbutz Misgav Am. Their objective is to seize Kibbutz members as hostages, intending to negotiate the release of prisoners from Israeli jails. However, most Kibbutz residents are absent, attending a concert that night, leaving the community partially deserted. The commandos target a small Kibbutz house, believing it to be a family residence. When they realize this is rather the dormitory for the very young children, it’s already too late.
