An Israeli man killed in a fall while attempting to climb the Cotopaxi volcano, the second-highest peak in Ecuador, is identified as Gil Banks, 25, from Caesarea.

Banks, who immigrated to Israel with his family from Scotland 13 years ago, was traveling in South America after finishing his army service in an elite unit.

Friends tell Chanel 12 that Banks was “brilliant, a person with a huge heart.”
