Haifa, Israel - Evyatar Borovsky, 31, was laid to rest Tuesday evening. He was murdered by a Palestinian Authority resident terrorist, who stabbed him to death while he waited for a ride at the Tapuach Junction. Several hundred people attended the funeral.

His widow, Tzofia, was at the funeral with the couple’s five children. She called to the media, “Look, five orphans.”

Evyatar’s father Baruch eulogized him. “I can’t believe that I’m here,” he said. “Surely tonight you’ll get up, you’ll laugh and say, ‘I fooled you.’”

“That’s what you always did, made everyone happy,” he said. He added, “Go before G-d and say, ‘I am the last sacrifice.’”

People lower the body of Jewish settler Eviatar Borovsky, 31, into a grave during his funeral in Kfar Hassidim near the northern Israeli city of Haifa April 30, 2013. Israel on Tuesday launched its first targeted attack on a militant in Gaza since a war in November, killing a Palestinian jihadist in an air strike that put further strain on a five-month-old ceasefire. There was also bloodshed in the Israeli-occupied West Bank, where for the first time since 2011, a Palestinian killed the Jewish settler. Israeli soldiers shot and wounded the attacker after he stabbed the man at a busy intersection.
