A deep sense of national anguish has gripped Israel as the frantic search for a missing 9-year-old girl from Tzfat continues.

Little Hymanut Kassou vanished without a trace on February 25  near an immigration center, sending shockwaves through Tzfat’s vibrant Jewish community. Since that fateful day, a massive search effort comprising of over 1,000 police officers, IDF troops, civilian volunteers, and even expert dog handling units has searched the region.

According to Arutz Sheva, no rock has been left unturned as authorities have conducted intensive door-to-door sweeps and questioned every local resident. Search teams are still combing nearby caves, abandoned buildings, and dense foliage within a mile radius of her last known whereabouts. Local police have ruled out any connections to another high-profile missing child case from the region a few years ago.

Senior cabinet ministers like Itamar Ben-Gvir and Ofir Sofer have made solidarity visits to Tzfat, while the Jewish Agency has offered the equivalent of $27,000 for any tips leading to Kassou’s whereabouts.

As flyers bearing Kassou’s angelic face circulate online and plaster every neighborhood, millions of Jews remain transfixed awaiting any scrap of information.

For all of our Israeli readers, anyone with information is asked to contact the Tzfat police station or call the IDU hotline at 0544876709.
