Shani Louk’s father Nissim tells Channel 12 while today’s announcement that the IDF has recovered her body was difficult to receive, it was also news that he had been waiting for. The family was notified on October 30 that she had been killed on October 7.

Nissim says military representatives showed him a picture of Shani’s body when they provided the news this morning that her body had been recovered from Gaza.

He praises the “brave soldiers” who recovered her body.

And he urges the public to come to her funeral, which will take place on Sunday. “She was light in her life and in her death,” he says. “This light will accompany the people of Israel.”
