Amnon Rosenberg, 51, of Kibbutz Nirim was killed on June 05, 2008 when a mortar bomb fired by Palestinian terrorists from the Gaza Strip hit the Nirlat paint factory in Kibbutz Nir-Oz. Hamas claimed responsibility for the attack.
Shortly before noon, several mortar bombs exploded outside the factory. Amnon Rosenberg, a Nirlat employee, was killed and four others were wounded while running for cover.
Amnon, born in Beersheba, had been a member of Kibbutz Nirim since 1982, when he married kibbutz member Tali. A dedicated worker, he also had a black belt in karate and taught self-defense and yoga to children. He also volunteered with the civilian border patrol.
Amnon Rosenberg was buried in Kibbutz Nirim. He is survived by his wife Tali, two sons – two sons, Dor 27, and Eldar 22 – and daughter Yarden, 12.
Israel's Voice commitment to memorialize each victim of terror doesn't end here. We are currently reaching out to those who have been victimized and to every family who's lost loved one(s) due to terror. Your story must be told and we intend to create a documentary for each individual. Silence is no longer an option. Contact us today to set up an appointment. email@example.com Our preference is to make your story heard in English, but Hebrew is also fine. Videos will be subtitled for the world to understand.
