Jerusalem – VIDEO: Ofra Shooting Couple Who Lost Baby, Make First Public Appearance Since Attack

 

 

Jerusalem – Amichai Ishran, the father of the the infant who died following the terror attack outside Ofra, said his son managed to unite the Jewish people during the three days he was alive.

During an emotional press conference held in Shaarei Tzedek Hospital by Amichai and his wife Shira who were both shot and wounded last Sunday, the two bereaved parents gave heartfelt thanks to the outpouring of love they said they have felt following the terror attack which they said had given them physical and psychological strength.

“Our baby, Amiad Israel, managed to unite the Jewish people in the three days he was alive, something most people never manage to do during their entire lives,” said Amichai.

“Everyone wanted to come and help us and wish us well, secular, religious, haredi, from across the spectrum of Israeli society,” he continued.

Amichai said that the Jewish people should take the importance of unity to heart from the death of their baby, and remain united despite differences of opinion.

“We are brothers first and foremost, that they will not succeed in taking from us. They can stab us, shoot us, run us over, throw stones at us, murder us, murder our children, but they cannot break us, we wont let them,” he said emotionally.
