When Chief Warrant Officer Kasahun Baynesian was killed on July 17 by a Gazan terrorist, he left behind three kids and a wife who was nine months pregnant.

On Thursday, Galeitu Baynesian gave birth to the couple's fourth child, a girl, at Soroka University Medical Center in Beersheba.

Galeitu recounted the bittersweet delivery, explaining to Channel 2 how her husband's presence was missed. "I miss him and I hope that the baby will help me cope."

She told the television station present at the hospital that her husband had been at the birth of their third child, but missed the first two as he was serving in military duty.

Galeitu told Channel 2 that she had named her daughter Tal-Or (the combination of "dew" and "light"), because her husband had been killed with the day's first light. "I hope that our daughter will be our shining light."

Kasahun Baynesian, 39, of Netivot served in the Northern Brigade of the Gaza Division. He was one of four soldiers killed when their military jeep was hit by an anti-tank missile fired by a Gazan terrorist squad, which used a cross-border tunnel to infiltrate southern Israel on July 17.
