An eight-year-old boy was killed over Shabbat after he fell while playing with friends over a group of five-meter-tall haystacks in Moshav Patish in the Negev.

Magen David Adom medics and paramedics called to the scene found Yaakov Tzafriri with bruises all over his body and buried under a haystack in a hayloft near his parents' house.

Police have opened an investigation into the incident.

Please note that at the request of the family, please indicate the full name of the child, since there are several children with the same name in the locality.
