Alon Orbach, the brother of IDF soldier Erez Orbach, who was murdered, along with three others, in a terrorist attack in Jerusalem Sunday, told Arutz Sheva that his brother fought to serve in the IDF despite receiving a medical exemption from military service.

"Erez was a role model in everything. He was punctual. Everything was done to the 100th percent. Everything was perfect." Alon said.

Alon said that those qualities were also evident last Saturday night, less than a day before Erez was murdered. "On Saturday night he prepared a lecture which he had to bring to the army. Everything had to be cut and pasted accurately."

"When he would come back from the army, he would take care of the house," Alon said. "Erez always walked with his head up high. It was important for him to go in the uniform with pride."

"His fighting to be enlisted gives us a lot of pride. It comes from the education he received at home, from his respect for [our] mother and father."
