A 27-year old Israeli, Itamar Avnon, was among the 298 passengers and crew killed on Malaysian Air Flight 17, the Jerusalem Post reported based on a report in the Israeli online daily newspaper Ma’ariv. The plane exploded in midair over eastern Ukraine near the border with Russia after it was apparently struck by a truck-launched surface-to-air-missile fired by pro-Russian separatists.
Friends and family reportedly gathered at the Avnon home in Kiryat Tivon this morning.
The family is still waiting for official notification of Itamar’s death.
"Airplanes that take off are also supposed to land but this this time it didn't help Itamar. He was with us for 27 years and now remains only memories," Dov Avnon, Itamar’s father concluded.
