On Thursday night, as Yom Hatzmaut, Israel Independence Day, came to a close, two Palestinian terrorists in Elad wielding an axe and a knife brutally murdered three Jewish men, all fathers who left behind 16 children.
“For violence against your brother Jacob, Shame shall cover you, And you shall be cut off forever.” Obadiah 1:10
Yonatan Habakkuk, father of five, Boaz Gol, father of five, and Oren Ben Yiftach, father of six, were murdered by the terrorists.
This is Oren Ben Yiftah, Yonatan Havakuk and Boaz Gol, the 3 Israelis, murdered by axe-wielding Palestinian terrorists in #Elad last night, for one reason only – they were Jews.
They now leave combined *16 children* without a father!
May their memories be forever blessed. 🕯 pic.twitter.com/OcaHXiGH5t

“My heart refuses to believe that I was left alone with five orphans,” Limor Habakkuk said of her murdered husband. Habakkuk’s brother-in-law added, “He helped everyone with a smile, the whole city called him ‘brother.’ There is no substitute for this man.”
