JNS.org – Two Israel Defense Forces (IDF) soldiers, including one American, were killed in an accidental grenade explosion on Sunday. They were laid to rest on Monday.

The victims of the accident were American lone soldier Sgt. Shlomo Rindenow and Israeli-Druze reserve soldier Staff Sgt. Husam Tafash.

“My little brother was full of life and always smiling, and he never complained. He was the little guy of the family. He told me ‘I want to go into the IDF.’ He came [to Israel] and now he’s here because he was serving all of us,” said Avraham Rindenow, Shlomo’s oldest brother.

“We lost the one we hold dearest. We’ll continue to remember you, you’ll remain in our hearts,” said members of Husam’s family, Yedioth Ahronoth reported.
