  • Inbal Lieberman, Chief Military Security of Kibbutz Nir Am, saved the entire kibbutz from an October attack with her resourcefulness.
  • Tali Hadad, from Ofakim, a lioness mother who, even after her son was injured, continued to evacuate dozens of wounded people from the fighting zone under fire, without any prior experience.
  • Nasrin Yosef, a Druze from Moshav Yated, displayed great resourcefulness and a true sense of mission to save her fellow Jews, convincing the terrorists to share with her information about the location of an upcoming attack, thus saving the Moshav.
