Hagai, the grandfather of Eytam Magini who was killed in a terrorist attack in Tel Aviv last night, tells Channel 12 news that his grandson was recently engaged.
“Eytam is like no other. The center of things — everyone who saw him fell in love with him immediately. He was insanely talented — he served in the army in submarines. He studied computers and neuroscience. Only about a month ago, on Purim, he became engaged to his partner Ayala,” Hagai says.
He shows the outlet his phone with a recent WhatsApp conversation with Eytam in which he asked his grandfather if they could speak soon to discuss who he would want to invite to the wedding.
Hagai sent the final message to his grandson as the reports came in of the attack: “Give me a sign that you are ok.”
Magini was killed alongside his friend Tomer Morad.
