Sergeant First Class Omer Kabilio, an alumnus of the Nechalim Yeshiva, was killed while en route to operational activity in northern Israel.

His funeral will take place at 4:00p.m. in Petah Tikva.

Omer is the son of Eric Kabilio, aide to MK Moshe Passal of the Likud.

Kabilio was killed on Sunday night, in a crash that took place around 9:00p.m. Magen David Adom (MDA) received a report of a motorcycle rider who hit a wall near the southern industrial zone in Kiryat Shmona. MDA paramedics and EMTs provided the victim with first aid, but after repeated attempts to revive him, they were forced to declare his death.

The victim was, at the time, identified as a 22-year-old man who had suffered severe multisystem injuries. On Monday, he was named as Omer Kabilio.
