Yoav Tzur

Death of Heroes

My son died a death of heroes. I am proud that we raised him to stand in the battles of Israel. He went to battle knowing that the worst could happen to him, this is how we educated him and this is what happened. I had a feeling that it would happen.

 

…..

 

The enemy does not sleep, but we fell asleep.  However we say to the government, do not do anything quickly. Do everything slowly, slowly and according to plan. Do not be deterred by anything and be strong.

 

From the words of Yoav Tzur from Beer Tuvia, after the fall of his son Itamar, in the Second Lebanese War.
