Yaakov Mortuv

Resident of the Gaza Envelope

Yaakov Mortuv, a 66-year-old man from Ofakim, had worked at the local manufacturing plant for about three years, assembling electronic circuits in the Flex workshop. On Saturday, October 7, 2023, as sirens sounded in the city, Yaakov quickly left his home heading towards the public shelter to find refuge from the missiles and there he encountered terrorists who shot him to death. Sadly, it was only after a week and a half that his body was identified, and on Wednesday, October 18, 2023, Yaakov was laid to rest in the Ofakim cemetery. He left behind two sons, Alexei and Michael.

Yaakov’s managers recount: “Yaakov was professionally an economist, a quiet and modest man. He was a professional worker and did his job to the best of his ability. Sociable and pleasant-natured.His loss is greatly felt by the manufacturing plant and by the Negev Eran community. Our hearts are with the sons and the entire family.”

May his memory be a blessing and his deeds an inspiration for generations to come.
