GAZA. (THECOUNT) — Shani Louk has been identified as the woman whose body was seen in the back of a pick-up truck operated by Palestinian terrorists in a surprise attack in southern Israel on Saturday.

Louk, 30, known as “shanukkk” on Instagram, was a German citizen visiting Israel while attending a music festival for peace held near the Gaza border fence.


Hundreds of Israelis and other music lovers were camping out for the Shemini Atzeret holiday when the attack occurred.

Chaos erupted at an all-night nature party near Kibbutz Re’im close to the Gaza Strip as the first rockets were fired by Hamas on Saturday morning. Eyewitnesses said the rockets were quickly followed by gunshots fired into the crowd even as hundreds of partygoers attempted to flee the site, according to timesofisrael.

Hamas launched a major assault on Israel early Saturday with thousands of rockets fired and an unprecedented assault by gunmen on border communities, including the music festival. At least 200 Israelis have been confirmed killed and over 1,400 wounded by Saturday evening.

An unconfirmed Ynet report claimed at least one death, and Israeli media reported dozens of wounded with many still hiding from further potential gunmen, at the desert site near Kibbutz Re’im in the western Negev where thousands were taking part in the event.
