Israeli soccer star Lior Asulin killed in Hamas attack

Former Israeli soccer star Lior Asulin was among those killed in attacks by Hamas terrorists, officials have reported.

Asulin was celebrating his 43rd birthday at a music festival where 260 people were killed.

The situation

"Viral videos captured the moment Saturday morning when Hamas paragliders descended on the festival that was held near the border with Gaza," Breitbart News reported.

"Partygoers, who only moments before had been dancing, suddenly found themselves running for their lives as shots rang out. Dozens were taken hostage, and among those killed was Asulin," it added.

The team's statement

“With great sadness, after many hours in which he was declared missing, it is now known that the club’s former player, Lior Assolin, was murdered by terrorists at a party in Ra’im," his former Tel Aviv team said in a statement.

"Hapoel Tel Aviv Football Club bows its head and asks to send reinforcements to the members of Lior’s family in their difficult time. Strengthening the security forces. Take care of yourself and your family members," it continued.
