Father of mortar victim found body of son

Moshe Etzion, the father of Ze’ev Etzion, tells Channel 2 that when the mortar shell fell in kibbutz Nirim on Tuesday, he was asked to find the landing site — and approaching the scene, discovered his son had been injured in the blast and was then in critical condition.

A doctor from Beersheba’s Soroka Medical Center later informed him that his son had succumbed to his wounds, he says.

Etzion’s funeral concluded a short while ago in Kibbutz Nirim.
