The father of Hadar Cohen, a brave 19-year-old soldier brutally murdered by Palestinian terrorists, buried his beloved daughter in an emotional ceremony.

Echoing the feelings of thousands of Israelis and millions around the world, Hadar’s father had one last message for her: “I’m proud of you…proud (of you) and (I) salute you.”

The funeral last week was one of many such ceremonies that Israelis from all walks of life have had to endure over the Jewish state’s 67-year history.

Parents burying their children is one of the biggest tragedies that can afflict a human being, yet this is the reality for far too many in Israel.

Watch this incredibly sad video of a last goodbye to a true hero.
