Four year old Daniel Tragerman was killed on Friday afternoon when a mortar fired from Hamas struck a car in Nahal Oz, near the Gaza border, sending shrapnel flying into the Tragerman family home. His mother, Gila, said they had only three seconds to get their son to shelter. The family were packed and ready to evacuate the kibbutz due to the security situation, having only returned days before from spending much of the war with friends and family further north. The IDF said the mortar was fired near a school that Hamas was using to shelter displaced Palestinians. Daniel’s funeral was held on Sunday morning.
