"The following story is simply chilling," wrote broadcaster Sharon Nissim on Twitter: "A 9-year-old Munder fan who was released from monster captivity this week experienced one unforgettable moment of hope in captivity. It happened exactly on his birthday, October 23, the day we all hung a red balloon in his honor in the hope that he would be released."
"The family turned to celebrities to congratulate him in order to raise awareness, one of them was Elinav Barda, the coach of Hapoel Be'er Sheva, Ohad's beloved team. During his stay in captivity, Ohad was forced to change hiding places repeatedly, and from time to time the prisoners who were at his side were also exchanged. On the same birthday, another boy (who has already been released) who has no prior acquaintance with Ohad entered Ohad's hiding place.

The boy asked: "Are you a fan?", a fan replied: "Yes", the next part was amazing: "Congratulations on your birthday" said the same boy, a fan was shocked and asked how do you know I have a birthday?, the answer was "I saw on TV that Elinav Barda congratulated you and said he was waiting for your return"
Ohad, who until then had been detained and strong in captivity and did not cry at all, broke down and cried with emotion at the gesture of the Hapoel Be'er Sheva coach. The family says the video gave him great hope and strength to continue surviving in captivity until his release.
"Sometimes we do things to strengthen and encourage the abductees and are not aware of where every blessing and action can go." Finish miracles
