The son of one of the seven people who died in a terror shooting in Jerusalem on Friday reveals his wife gave birth to a son hours after his father Rafael Ben Eliyahu was killed.

“You and mom were supposed to come to the bris, but ultimately you were not able to hold [your grandson],” Kobi Ben Eliyahu says during the funeral in Jerusalem. “Instead, I’m bringing you to the cemetery. You left a giant hole in our hearts.”

Another of Ben Eliyahu’s sons was seriously wounded in the attack, but his condition has since improved.
