“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.
