Israeli soldier celebrates wedding days after he’s shot and his brother goes missing in action

An Israeli soldier celebrated his wedding Tuesday, a little over a week after he was wounded battling Hamas terrorists and his younger brother was declared missing in action.

Amid grief and uncertainty, Yonatan and Galya Tzvi, both 24, tied the knot in a scaled-down ceremony that had been planned months before Hamas terrorists stormed into Israel Oct. 7 and slaughtered more than 1,400 people. 

“It was obviously a very bittersweet wedding and there were tears,” the groom’s father, Rabbi Doron Perez, told Fox News Digital. “But somehow we were able to celebrate, and it was also very happy.”

Hamas terrrorists took more than 210 hostages in the brutal ambush. 

Israel has responded with retaliatory airstrikes that have leveled entire blocks and killed 4,385 people as of Saturday, according to the Palestinian territory’s Hamas-controlled health ministry.
