(April 8, 2022 / Israel Hayom) The Israelis killed in a terrorist shooting at a Tel Aviv bar on Thursday night have been identified as Eytam Magini and Tomer Morad, both 27, from Kfar Saba and 35-year-old Barak Lufan, head coach of the Israeli national kayak team and father of three.
Magini and Morad, who are childhood friends, will be laid to rest on Sunday.
“We agreed to meet them there. On the way, I realized something had happened in Tel Aviv and we tried to get a hold of them, but they didn’t answer. We realized something had happened,” said Romano, adding that Magini had just gotten engaged to his girlfriend three weeks ago.
Ilan Grossman, another friend, said: “They got there first and saved places for everyone else. Everyone was on the way when the whole mess began. They didn’t answer for three hours. We realized it was them, but we didn’t want to believe it. They served in combat in dangerous places, and in the end were murdered at a pub in Tel Aviv.”
