IDF Captain Tal Nachman, 21, was laid to rest on Tuesday in Ness Ziona after being killed in a friendly fire incident near the Gaza border.

Hundreds of people arrived at the funeral to comfort the bereaved family. The deceased's father, Nasi Nachman, was quoted by Channel 2 as saying at the funeral, "I had a feeling that I would be getting terrible news... I guess we did not protect him well enough."

The IDF launched an investigation into the incident in which Tal Nachman was  mistaken for a terrorist and shot in the back by Givati IDF forces.
