Lt. Hanan Barak, 21, from Arad, was buried at 8:00 p.m. Sunday in Arad's military cemetery. "Hanan is a great man, who lived to give to others, to do good for others," Barak's girlfriend said of him at the funeral. Barak's sister, Atara, said her brother was "the greatest thing in the whole world." Barak and St.-Sgt. Pavel Slotsker, 20, from Dimona, were killed and Cpl. Gilad Shalit, 19, from Mitzpeh Hila in the Galilee, was kidnapped on Sunday when Palestinians attacked a military post and two vehicles on the Israel-Gaza border in an operation that touched off a gunbattle with soldiers that also left four IDF troops hurt and four gunmen dead.
