The twin brother of a man killed in the deadly Elad terror attack said he saw his brother hours before he was murdered as they celebrated Israeli Independence Day together as a family.

“We had a barbecue and he was kissing me non-stop, like that on the shoulders. He told me ‘may it only be good for you’ and said I should go to him if anything is painful for me,” Lior Ben Yiftah, the twin of Oren Ben Yiftah, tells the Ynet news site.

“He had a heart of gold, he only did good things and wanted to help others,” Lior says. Since receiving the news, Lior adds, “I am only in pain. My flower is gone, my heart has gone with him… I can’t believe my brother is gone.”
