Israeli climber summits Everest in memory of Matan Lior, killed on Oct. 7

Israeli climber Ran Krauss became the 11th Israeli to summit Mount Everest when he reached the top of the world’s tallest mountain last week at the end of a trek dedicated to Matan Lior, who was killed at the Supernova music festival on October 7.

Upon reaching the mountain peak, Krauss was photographed holding a flag with a picture of Lior emblazoned on it.

Speaking to Channel 12, Krauss says from the moment he set out on his 50-day trek, he knew he wanted to dedicate his summit, and his photo at the top, to Lior.

“I wanted to dedicate it to and honor his memory,” he says.
