Proud Zionist Who Immigrated From South Africa Killed by Hamas Gunman

Kay’s girlfriend, Jen Schiff, told reporters that it was important for her to share how much Eli loved Israel and how he immigrated to the country by himself to fight for the nation. Eli’s parents and siblings followed his footsteps a year ago by moving to Israel.

“Eli loved this country. He fought for it. He had a few injuries during his army service, but he continued his service. He is the strongest person I have ever known, emotionally and physically. He always treated everyone with love and respect,” Schiff said.

President Isaac Herzog said that the “fact the terrorist was from Hamas ‘political wing’ compels the international community to recognize it as a terror group,” in reference to the UK’s decision Friday to fully proscribe the Palestinian militant group, including its political arm.
