Motti Ashkenazi, 59, who was killed in yesterday’s terrorist attack in Ariel, is laid to rest in Yavne.

His family requested that the funeral be closed to media coverage.

Ashkenazi worked as a supplier for the Amisragas gas distributor in the West Bank area. He is survived by his wife, three children and two grandchildren.

“Motti was a loving person, full of joy, an exemplary husband, and a family man with a huge soul who always loved to help everyone,” his family said in remarks provided by the Yavne municipality.

Another victim, Tamir Avihai, was laid to rest last night, and the funeral of the third man who was killed, Michael Ladygin, is pending the arrival of his family members from abroad.
