Major Tzafrir Bar-Or, 32-years-old from Holon, was laid to rest on Monday. Since his enlistment in the IDF Bar-Or served in the Golani brigade through numerous conflicts in Lebanon, Gaza and the West Bank.

Army Radio reported that hundreds attended his funeral including soldiers who had served with him in Golani.

“Thank you for the incredible relationship, the family that we were privileged to build, we promised to protect it at all costs, and we promised to be together for all time,” his wife Sivan, who is in her third trimester of pregnancy, eulogized at the funeral, Army Radio reported.

“My dearest love, my amazing Tzafrir, modest and loving of humanity, for me you will always be king of the world, I love you,” she said choking on her tears, unable to speak.

Major Tzafrir Bar-Or also left behind a one-year-old daughter, his parents and a sister.
