Staff and volunteers who regularly take care of these arrangements for the deceased in the city were unable to perform reach the city due to the barrage of rockets coming from the Gaza Strip.

The volunteers stayed to provide medical security to the small group of people who managed to arrive for the burial service to pay their respects for their neighbor and friend.
