She is earnestly appealing for anyone with information about her daughter’s wellbeing to come forward, as per reports from Al Arabiya, which cite German media.
It was additionally revealed that Shani Louk’s mother hails from Baden-Württemberg, western Germany, and presently resides in Tel Aviv.
Shani’s cousin, Tom Winthrop Luk, had previously attempted to reach out to her when they became aware that members of the Qassam Brigades had crossed the Gaza border. However, there was no response, leading them to believe she was safe at the festival.
The young woman, employed as a tattoo artist, had been attending a music gathering in the Negev Desert in southern Israel to celebrate the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur.
This event drew thousands of young Israelis. However, in the early morning hours, the attendees were taken by surprise when Hamas launched a sudden military operation, both on the ground and in the air, targeting Israeli settlements near the Gaza Strip.
The German Foreign Ministry has confirmed its close monitoring of the situation.
