Sergei Avramyan, 86, whose wife was killed during last month’s conflict with Palestinian Islamic Jihad, has died, Walla reported on Thursday.
The cause of death was not specified.
Inga Avramyan, 82, was killed on May 11 during “Operation Shield and Arrow” when a rocket scored a direct hit on her home in Rehovot, about 12 miles south of Tel Aviv.
The ceiling collapsed in her apartment as she tried to help Sergei, who was partially paralyzed in a car accident and was unable to reach a bomb shelter.
Avrayan was the only Israeli fatality during the five-day conflict.
Five other people were wounded in the rocket attack, including Sergei, who was lightly hurt.
Some 200 people attended Inga’s funeral at the Alternative Cemetery at Kibbutz Givat Brenner, including Diaspora Affairs Minister Amichai Chikli, who represented the government.
“Inga was murdered by despicable terrorists who choose to indiscriminately fire at civilian population centers,” said Chikli. “The murderous, wretched terrorists will not succeed. Although we are forced to make sacrifices, we will never bow our heads to evil or surrender to it.”
