Oct 12, 2000 – First Cpl. Yosef Avrahami 33 an IDF soldier in the reserves, was lynched by a mob at the Palestinian Police building in Ramallah.
First Cpl. Yosef Avrahami and First Sgt. Vadim Norzhich, who had been called up for reserve army duty as drivers only a few days before, were apprehended by Palestinian police after they mistakenly entered the Palestinian controlled town of Ramallah. They were brought to Palestinian police headquarters in the center of Ramallah, where a violent mob of Palestinians stormed the building and tortured the soldiers to death, mutilating and defiling their bodies beyond recognition.
Avrahami worked as a sales manager in a toy shop and as a salesman for Elite. Neighbours spoke of him as a polite, kind and friendly man who was liked by everyone.
Avrahami is mourned by a wife and three children (a 9-year-old daughter, and twins aged four).
