Israel Defense Forces Staff Sargent Ido Baruch was killed in a Palestinian terrorist attack in Samaria on October 11.

Wednesday, 19 October 2022 | The family of an Israeli soldier who was killed last week in a drive-by shooting in Samaria has donated his corneas to two people, saving their eyesight, Israeli media reported on Monday.

The recipients, both in their 80s, “were moved to tears when they heard about the identity of the donor,” Walla reported.

Baruch was securing a civilian march near Shavei Shomron in northern Samaria when he was shot from a moving vehicle. He was evacuated to Meir Medical Center in Kfar Saba, where he succumbed to his wounds.

He was laid to rest in his home city of Gedera, south of Tel Aviv, last Wednesday.
