Baruch Dayan Emmet.

“The family of Corporal Netanel Yahalomi, who was killed in a terror attack on the Israel- Egypt border Friday afternoon, lives in the religious community of Nof Ayalon. The family members received the tragic news several hours before Shabbat, when the community rabbi and IDF representatives arrived at their house.

“Netanel was born in Bnei Brak, and then we moved to Nof Ayalon,” said his father, Shmuel Yahalomi. “He was a Torah student at the Mitzpe Yeriho Yeshiva. “He insisted on serving in a combat unit and joined the Artillery Corps, where I also served.”

The father added that Netanel used to study Torah even during his vacations.

‘Netanel fought and was killed for this land.’ Yahalomi family

Relatives and friends broke into tears as they entered the Yahalomi house on Friday afternoon. Netanel’s sister, Avital, said: “He went to defend the State and land. That is what he fought and was killed for. He died so we could live here. It was not an unnecessary death. God will give us the power to cope.”

and H”YD...May the G-d of Abraham, isaac and Jacob avenge his blood.
