Mother of fallen Israeli soldier recounts how her son died protecting others: ‘We still love him so deeply’

A fallen Israeli soldier saved over one hundred soldiers and civilians near Gaza after Hamas terrorists attacked his base.

First Lieutenant Yannai Kaminka, 20, from Tzur Hadassah, Israel, was killed in battle defending the Zikim base against the first wave of Hamas terrorists at approximately 8:13 a.m. on Saturday, October 7.

The Israel-Hamas war has had a devastating impact on Israeli citizens. Elana Kaminka, Yannai’s mother, told Fox News Digital that most families have at least one person who has been called up from reserve duty. Older adults and teenagers who’ve already completed their compulsory service have also been asked back to service.

“There’s nobody in Israel who doesn’t know somebody who was killed on October 7,” Elana said.
