In a tragic coincidence, Friday marks forty years to the death of the brother of an Israeli man who was killed in the early hours of the day in the West Bank, Army Radio reported.

Combat pilot Yitzhak Ofer, the brother of Shariyah Ofer who was murdered overnight in the West Bank, was killed on October 11, 1973 when his aircraft was shot down over the Golan Heights during the Yom Kippur War.
