30-year-old Artem Reznik, a resident of the Ukrainian city of Kharkiv, was killed in a rocket attack on the city on Friday morning. Reznik is the only child of Marina, who is active in the Kharkiv Jewish community, reported COLLive.

The city was hit with a barrage of over 20 rockets in Friday’s attack and, according to COLLive, the attacks continued after Shabbat as the Grand Kharkiv palace hotel was hit by an Iskander missile, leaving many injured.
