The man murdered before his wife and two of his ten children whilst driving themon Friday was Michael “Miki” Mark, a 48 year old from Otniel, the cousin of Mossad chief Yossi Cohen. Miki’s wife, Chava, 40, was seriously wounded, their 13-year-old daughter Tehila was moderately-to-seriously wounded, and their 15-year-old son Pedayah was lightly wounded. Beside the son, every member of the family was shot by terrorists who drove past their car travelling on Route 60 in Har Hevron.
The murdered father was the principal of a yeshiva in Otniel and a very well-known figure in his regional council. Otniel’s secretary, Eran Dgani, said, “Miki was a pillar of the settlement and of Har Hevron. He was one of the pioneers of the settlement. He was a very modest and honest man, a man of action in every inch of his body. Miki ran the yeshiva in Otniel for years, and he ran the company for the development of Har Hevron and led to extraordinary accomplishments. He was a man of faith and spirit, and he spent every moment of his free time studying torah. He was a gentle man and a devoted father to his family. His absence in the settlement will be great.”
