Hadar and Itay Berdichevsky, both 30, were killed in their home in Kibbutz Kfar Aza as they tried to protect the lives of their 10-month-old twins.

The twins, who had been hidden by their parents in their home’s reinforced room, survived.

Hadar’s brother Inbar Rosenfeld told Channel 13 news that the last message his family received was from Hadar making a joke about being stuck in the bomb shelter with the twins after air raid sirens sounded. They never heard from either of them again.

According to various media reports, the couple fought back against the Hamas terrorists who invaded its home but was ultimately killed.

Inbar said the twins were alone for more than 12 hours without food, but have since recovered and are being cared for by family.

“They were everything to me, the strongest anchor, they were the strongest and most beautiful couple, they showed us what good and right parenting was,” he said. “We’ll do everything to pass that on.”
