Yaniv Zohar, 54, a photographer for the Israel Hayom newspaper, was murdered by Hamas terrorists in Kibbutz Nahal Oz on October 7, 2023, along with his wife, Yasmin, and his two daughters Keshet and Tehelet.

Their 13-year-old son, who had gone for an early-morning run, escaped alive. Yasmin’s father, Haim Livne, was also murdered in the attack.

“Yaniv was the first newsman to arrive at the scene of the kidnapping of Gilat Shalit, and widely covered the Gaza disengagement. He was a wonderful friend, a devoted father, a man with heart and generosity,” Israel Hayom said in a statement.

“He would always run after the next frame, despite the difficult sights he was photographing,” the newspaper added.

Reporter Almog Boker eulogized his friend on X: “How much he loved the Gaza border towns, how much he loved Nahal Oz, how much he fought for his home. This dear and beloved man and talented photographer whose photos were broadcast around the world was murdered with his wife Yasmin and two daughters.”
