Hamas terrorists killed the granddaughter of three-time Israeli football champion
Mai Naim, the granddaughter of former Israeli national football team coach Shlomo Scharf, was shot dead by Hamas terrorists, one.co.il reports. The body of the 22-year-old girl was found near a music festival in Re'im kibbutz, 30 kilometers from the Gaza Strip.
Immediately after the attack began, Mai wrote on social media that she had managed to escape from the inferno and was already in a shelter near Bari kibbutz, but then the connection with her was cut off. Later, the Israeli military found Naim with no signs of life.
Maccabi Haifa Football Club expressed condolences to Sharf's family on social media.
"We bow our heads and sympathize with the grief of former team coach Shlomo Sharf after learning that his granddaughter Mai Naim was killed in the massacre at the Re'im festival. We share your grief and our hearts go out to you."
Shlomo Scharf was the head of Maccabi Haifa in 1983-1987 and 1990-1992, with whom he won three Israeli championships. He was the coach of the Israeli national team in 1992-1999. The Israelis reached the head-to-head matches of the 2000 European Championship qualifying tournament, losing on aggregate to Denmark.
As reported by OBOZ.UA, Hamas militants launched a massive attack on Israel on the morning of October 7, firing 5,000 rockets, then broke through the fence near the Gaza Strip and began committing atrocities, killing civilians.
As a result of the terrorist attack, the famous Israeli football player Lior Asulin was killed. The 43-year-old ex-forward and his friends were celebrating his birthday at a music festival in Re'im kibbutz.
