Amit Bonzel

Age:22
IDF

Since his decision to protect the country at age 16, Amit focused only on preparations for integration and enrolled in every possible course. His desire to serve in the reconnaissance unit burned in him so much that after studying at the AMIT Yeshiva High School in Petah Tikva, Amit enrolled in the “Keshet Yehuda” pre-military academy in the Golan Heights and awaited his next steps. He went through the reconnaissance unit test to try to get into the General Staff Reconnaissance Unit three times. He completed it successfully but did not pass the next process.

After not making it to the General Staff Reconnaissance Unit, Amit received an invitation for an interview in the Paratroopers reconnaissance unit. According to his father, that’s where he found his place in the army. “Just a week ago, he was invited to the officers’ course,” his father said. The family says that on October 7, Amit was rushed to the scene of the massacre and fought inside the kibbutzim. “Amit said that what he saw in the ‘Yad Vashem’ museum was a romantic movie compared to what he saw in the kibbutzim. He said they slaughtered and burned people.”
