In Memoriam of:

Aharon Haimov

Age: 25

In Loving Memory of the Innocent Souls Taken Too Soon. United in peace, their light shines on in the hearts left behind. October 7, 2023, a day of sorrow, but their memories guide us toward a hopeful tomorrow.

Aharon Haimov, 25, was shot and killed as he drove an ambulance to his hometown of Ofakim to help treat victims of the murderous Hamas incursion of Israel on October 7, the Magen David Adom (MDA) rescue group said.

Haimov was a senior paramedic who began his career with MDA as a post-high school volunteer.

He later joined the organization in a professional capacity as an emergency medicine paramedic and ambulance driver.

He died after being shot in an MDA ambulance by Palestinian terrorists as he was on his way to treat victims while the coordinated attack on Israel by Hamas from Gaza unfolded.

In a statement, MDA said the married father of two always performed his duties in an exemplary way and was the first to respond to emergency events.

“He was a person who put the good of others and the value of life ahead of everything else — including today, on this tragic morning,” said MDA director-general Eli Bin.
