4-year old terror victim to be buried on Sunday
Four-year old Daniel Tragerman HY"D (May God Avenge his blood) will be buried on Sunday at the Hevel Shalom cemetery in the Eshkol Region. Daniel was killed on Friday when a car parked outside his home in Kibutz Nachal Oz was hit by a rocket shot by Hamas terrorists. Daniel did not have enough time to escape the shrapnel.
"Daniel was a smart, kind, sensitive child," Daniel's mother Gila stated Friday. "We wanted to see him growing up with his brothers and fulfilling his potential."
Gila also described her own version of Friday's mortar shell strike.
"After a mortar shell exploded near kibbutz buildings earlier [Friday], we were preparing to travel to my parents in Kiryat Ono," she recounted. "The bags were prepared in advance. I just went outside for a moment and then we heard the 'code red' siren."
The community is in shock.
"This is a sad day, the saddest one in the area in 14 years," Haim Yalin, head of the Eshkol Regional Council, stated Saturday. "This is the nightmare of every resident and every family."
"A 4-year-old boy was killed, what else can you say?" he added. "You have to embrace your family and be united on such a sad and difficult day."The IDF has identified the location from which the terrorists fired the mortar that killed 4-year old Daniel.
Early Saturday, the IDF clarified the circumstances of Daniel's death, saying Hamas terrorists from its "military wing," the Al-Qassam Brigades, had fired the deadly mortar shell from a site "adjacent to the Jafar Ali Ibn Taleb school in the Zeitoun neighborhood of Gaza City."
An army statement early Saturday said the facility served as a "shelter maintained by Hamas authority", correcting an earlier statement in which it had stated it was an UNRWA-operated facility.Of course, since Daniel was a Jew, no one outside of Israel is likely to care. But look at the picture above. It's the picture of a terror victim. If that doesn't make you want to cry, then you have lost all feeling for what is good in this world.
