Terror victim Ziv Hajabi laid to rest
Hundreds of people attended on Monday the funeral of Ziv Hajabi, who was brutally executed by a Muslim terrorist at the offices of a factory in the Barkan industrial zone.
Ziv Hajabi, 35, from Rishon LeTzion, was buried at Moshav Nir Israel in southern Israel.
The family has requested from the media not to live-broadcast the funeral and to respect the family’s privacy.
Hajabi’s widow Natalie eulogized her murdered husband. “We were together 18 years, the love of my life, my first and last love in the world … I can not say ‘Take care of us from above’ because you are here. But help me,” said Natalie.
“The love of my life, from the age of 17 and a half we are together. My Ziv, I love you, forever.”
Among the mourners were the family of Kim Levengrond-Yehezkel, the other victim from Sunday’s attack.
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.
