Sgt. Dvir Lisha, 21, a Golani soldier from Nitzan, was killed on October 7, 2023, fighting Hamas terrorists in the south.

Lisha, who was born in the Neve Dekalim settlement of Gush Katif before the Gaza disengagement, was buried at Mount Herzl in Jerusalem on October 8.

He is survived by his parents, Nava and Nissan, and his seven siblings: Shira, Ora, Meir, Talia, David, Yehuda and Yisrael.

“When you were 3 [years old], we were uprooted from Neve Dekalim in Gush Katif,” his mother, Nava, recalled at his funeral. “It is not a coincidence that you fell so close to there.

“From the pains of this war, we will be reborn anew as a nation,” said Nava.
