Pascal Avrahami, 49 a Chief Warrant Officer of Jerusalem was one of eight victims of a series of terrorist attacks perpetrated against civilians and IDF soldiers in Israel’s southern region. He died on August 18, 2011.
Pascal Avrahami was born in France and moved to Israel in 1977. He joined the Border Police YAMAM (the Israeli SWAT Unit) in 1985 and was trained as a fighter and sniper.
Avrahami was a legendary sharpshooter and was the police force’s elite anti-terror unit’s most veteran sniper. A decorated officer, Avrahami was awarded the police medal of valor in 1990 and in 1995 received the medal of distinguished service.
Avrahami was killed by terrorist fire near the Egyptian border while Defense Minister Ehud Barak and IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz briefed journalists nearby. Shortly before he was killed, he was photographed alongside them.
