Tal Eilon, a lover of the sea, his family and his community of Kfar Aza, was killed protecting his beloved home.

Eilon commanded his community security team and was the first to mobilized to protect Kfar Aza during the initial infiltration of Hamas from Gaza on October 7, 2023.

Together with his father, they were able to eliminate three terrorists before Eilon fell in battle, according to Micha Kichka, who served as Eilon’s officer in their army days.

An Ashdod port worker, Eilon was “a hero of Israel,” a father of three, husband, son, brother and friend, said Kichka.

“He was a soldier with morals, professional, intelligent and with values,” said Kichka.

Kfar Aza was the scene of some of the worst atrocities on October 7, where more than 100 civilians were murdered.

Palestinian gunmen set fire to several homes to force their occupants to come out, but many residents preferred to die in the fires than be killed by the terrorists, according to accounts. Many bodies were found inside the homes.
