Col. Jonathan Steinberg, 42, the commander of the Nahal Brigade, was killed on Saturday while clashing with Hamas terrorists in Kerem Shalom. He was buried on October 8 in Jerusalem.

Steinberg was en route to the site of clashes being managed by his subordinates when he encountered a terrorist who killed him. He is one of the most senior Israeli officers to have been killed in combat in recent memory.

“My dear Yoni, our son, a devoted husband, beloved father, fell on his way to fulfill his task,” eulogized Steinberg’s father, Dani, at the Mount Herzl military cemetery in Jerusalem.

“Let us carry on the legacy he left us, his family, his soldiers. That way perhaps we can overcome this terrible blow,” he said.
