Second Lt. Pedaya Mark


Seven years after his father was murdered in a terror attack, Second Lieutenant Pedaya Mark, an officer in the Givati Reconnaissance Unit, was killed in battle in Gaza. His cousin, Elhanan Kalmanzon, was murdered by terrorists on that ‘Black Sabbath’ after saving many in Kibbutz Be’eri, and his brother was killed four years ago in a road accident.

His sister Orit eulogized: “Pedaya had waited all his life to be in the army; he always loved the country, and the family was above everything, he was our rock.”

His sister Shira said: “His courage in battle was astounding, but Pedaya was a hero every day, ever since the terrible attack in which our father was murdered and our mother was injured.”
