A desperate Israeli couple attempted to hide their 10-month-old twin babies as Hamas terrorists charged into their home and killed them.
Itai and Hadar Berdichevsky, both aged 30, are believed to have been murdered by Hamas gunmen after attempting to fight off the invaders.
Remarkably the young couple’s baby children were later found alive in a shelter where they had been hidden in a desperate bid to save their lives.
Israeli troops battled their way into Kfar Gaza, in southern Israel before discovering the tiny twins and handing them over to a grandmother.
Honouring the murdered couple for their selfless action, Israel’s ambassador to Colombia, Gali Dagan said: “They hid their 10-month-old twin children in the shelter while terrorists infiltrated their home. Itay and Hadar were brutally murdered after bravely fighting the terrorists.”
