The parents whose children were in Ilana Kober's private daycare center in Eilat were summoned to the police station and watched the recordings of the videos filmed at the daycare center and burst into heartbreaking tears when they saw the abuse of their children. Today, Ilana Kober will be brought to the Eilat Magistrate's Court for another remand extension for the sixth time.
According to the parents who watched the videos, it appears that the aides are witnesses to the acts, and in some they even appear to be actively collaborating with the violence.
One mother said: "I watched the horrors and fell apart. The photos show my son sitting between Ilana Kober's legs and she asks another child to give my son contradictions in the cheek.

"In another video, my son was sitting on a chair while eating and Ilana picked him up with the chair and slammed him three times on the floor and then on the chair and pushed him towards the table. In another video, Ilana picked my son up from his shirt and slammed him to the floor like a doll, took a bullet and threw him hard straight in the face."

The mother says that in another video it turns out that there is a punishment swing in the kindergarten in which the children are seated and she contradicts them. Pinching them and strangling them. In another video, Ilana forcefully puts a bottle of food in my child's mouth, even though you can see that he refuses and signals 'no' with his head. She picked it up from her hand and shook it five times. They see Ilana taking another girl from kindergarten and forcibly slamming her at my son."
Another mother whose son was at the nursery says: "I choke back tears. We saw what these poor little children went through. Ilana tied my son's hands on the trampoline and put a tetra diaper on his head and left, and the boy tries to move and can't. I saw her pick him up his throat while he was asleep and slam him down. The child there from the age of 5 months is abused daily. Pushing my hands into his mouth, pulling his lip down."
"Catches him and gives him a strong paw"
Another mother whose son was in kindergarten said: "My son fell asleep in a hammock and suddenly Ilana arrived. She grabbed him in the face, shook him and gave him a strong paw in the face to wake him up. In another video, the boy fell asleep on a chair and she gave him a nose again. She walked past him, the boy smiled, and she pulled his hair out of his head just like that.
"She grabbed him by the neck and threw him towards the chair, then grabbed him and shook him constantly. She wiped a girl's tusk from kindergarten and then took the same wipe and wiped my son's face with this wipe. Now I understand why he has recurrent eye infections. I saw in the videos another boy tied to the swing getting hit in the face while she was spinning the swing quickly."
