[COMMUNICATED] A six-year-old boy has been publicly praised by the media after more hair-raising details from the terror attack in Elad last week have come to light. “He is a hero,” explained the boy’s uncle to Israeli news interviewers.
“He didn’t just stand there. He left his father and went to the security guards and told them, ‘My father is dead, there are terrorists.’ He is a hero, and his father is a hero.”
According to family members, after seeing his father Yonatan Chavakuk stabbed in the chest, 6-year-old Yosef ran to security guards to alert them of the terrorists and their brutal attack.
Now that he has had a couple days to process the horrors of that night, the young boy is very shaken.
“After all, he is a child,” Yosef’s uncles shared.
Yonatan Chavakuk leaves behind his young widow and five orphans who are shattered after hearing such incomprehensible news. His young widow has publicly expressed growing concern regarding how she will raise her children without Yonatan.
“My heart refuses to believe that I was left alone with five orphans,” she shared on social media.
“…Hashem should bless you, dear and beloved husband. We will miss you so much.”
Emergency relief funds are being urgently collected to help the Chavakuk family recover after the blow of their tremendous loss. Click here to send them much-needed financial relief.
