Heroic Israeli soldier killed in terror attack on Egypt border

Corporal Netanel Yahalomi was killed in a terror attack on the Israel- Egypt border Friday afternoon.

“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.”

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.”

No it was not an unnecessary death. But does anyone remember how, just a few short years ago, parents used to be relieved when their children were stationed on the Egyptian border — because it was so safe. Not anymore, sadly, not anymore.

    Thanks to Egypt’s new Muslim nuts in power, the entire Sinai is going to be a big mess, extremely unsafe for Israelis. That is a given.

    This Jewish soldier should never ever had to die in such circumstances. Worse, the migrants who asked for water might have been complicit with the terrorists, dishonestly diverting the soldiers’ attention to allow the attacks on the soldiers!!

    I hope it will be another lesson to learn and to avoid a repeat of this mess in the future.

      Actually, Wipe, you are right in this instance. It seems like the migrants were used, but under threat of death, to make a diversion. They had little children and babes in arms with them –I can’t blame the migrants.
