May she rest in peace
Since 2008, there have been no casualties in our community as a result of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
On April 16, 2008, David Papyan, the son of conductor and composer Vahagn Papyan, who moved from Armenia to Israel, was killed in the Gaza Strip.
Their unit was trapped in Gaza, and during a clash with Palestinian militants, three servicemen were killed, including 21-year-old private David Papyan, who was posthumously awarded the rank of sergeant for heroism,” he wrote.
