Terror victim Kim Levengrond Yehezkel laid to rest
Hundreds of people attended on Sunday the funeral of Kim Levengrond Yehezkel, who was tied up and brutally executed by a Muslim terrorist at the offices of a factory in the Barkan industrial zone.
Kim Levengrond Yehezkel, 28, was buried in her hometown of Rosh HaAyin in central Israel. Kim is survived by her husband Guy and a one-year and four-months-old son Kai.
“I’m sorry I was not there with you. Unfortunately, I couldn’t make it in time. I promise you that Guy and Kai will have everything they need. I promise I’ll take care of them the same way I used to take care of you. You can rest in peace,” said Kim’s father during his eulogy.
“I want to assure you that we will never forget you. We will raise our Kai just as you wanted, and you will always remain my best friend,” Kim’s husband mourned.
Shortly before 8 a.m., a Muslim terrorist entered a factory where he worked in the Barkan Industrial Zone, near Ariel, armed with a locally-made Carlo submachine gun.
The terrorist went upstairs to fix an electrical malfunction on the second floor, noticed several employees, and decided to go back downstairs. The terrorist took zip ties from the factory’s warehouse and then returned to the second floor to carry out the terror attack.
Upon reaching the second floor, where the factory’s offices are located, the Muslim terrorist started running towards Kim, who worked there as a secretary and was sitting behind a table at the end of the corridor.
Once he caught up to Kim, he put her in handcuffs and executed her.
The terrorist then advanced towards the office of Ziv Hajabi and shot him to death as well.
After the terror attack, the Muslim terrorist fled the scene, still armed with the submachine gun.
The Border Police’s counter-terrorism special unit Yamam, the elite Duvdevan unit, the counterterrorism Lotar unit, and the IDF Oketz Unit, as well as Shin Bet forces and Central Command and Judea-Samaria Brigade soldiers, are taking part in the manhunt for the terrorist.
