Adi Vital-Kaploun, 33, was murdered on October 7 by Hamas terrorists during their attack on Kibbutz Holit, but not before first saving the lives of her children, husband and father. She was sheltering in her family home when Hamas terrorists stormed into the house and shot her dead in front of her two sons, 4-year-old Negev and 4-month-old Eshel. But before she died, Adi texted her husband and father and warned them not to come to the house, likely saving their lives. She also somehow convinced the terrorists to spare her sons and take them to a neighbor. The neighbor and Vital-Kaploun’s two sons were seen in a well-publicized video being released by Hamas terrorists before walking back to safety in Israel.
Adi completed a master’s degree in engineering and was leading a successful career in cybersecurity when she was killed. In a statement, her family said that she was also a talented dancer, saxophonist and basketball player.
