IAF officer, Lt. Assaf Ramon, was killed when the F-16 he was piloting crashed into the southern Hebron hills.
“The nation is draped in sorrow over the death of Assaf, who fell from the skies, like his father Ilan, of blessed memory…The loss of one of these wonderful people, father and son, is a tragedy by itself. The loss of both brings with it unbearable pain. There is no consolation for Rona and the Ramon family, no consolation for the people of Israel. There are only tears.”
