Three Israeli Soldiers Killed By Egyptian Policeman

Three Israeli soldiers, who served in the mixed-gender light infantry Bardelas and Caracal battalions tasked with guarding the border, were killed by an Egyptian policeman.

Thousands turned out to pay their final respects Sunday evening to the three IDF soldiers who were killed over the weekend by an Egyptian policeman along the border.

Sgt. Lia Ben Nun, 19, was laid to rest at the military cemetery in Rishon Lezion, Staff Sgt. Ori Yitzhak Iluz, 20 was buried at the military cemetery in Safed, and Staff Sgt. Ohad Dahan, 20, was interred at the military cemetery in Ofakim.

The three soldiers served in the mixed-gender light infantry Bardelas and Caracal battalions tasked with guarding the border.

Ben-Nun’s sister, Ofir, eulogized Lia, describing the soldier as “a ray of sunshine.”

“I can’t digest that she won’t come back, what she went through,” said Ofir, who said Ben-Nun loved her army service and was “proud” to serve. “Thank you for being my sister for 19 years,” she added. “Watch over us from above.”

“How can we talk about you in the past tense,” mourned Ben-Nun’s aunt Pazit Sudari.

Lieutenant Colonel Ivan Kon, the commander of the IDF Bardalas battalion in which Ben-Nun served, described the soldier as “a figure of success from the start.”

“You were a role model, a warrior, your character and legacy will accompany us forever,” he added.

President of Eritrea, Isaias Afwerki, told Sputnik that the Ukraine conflict is part of the US’ 30-year-long war on Russia.
