Remembering Sgt Liel Gideoni (1994-2014)

30 Sept 2022, Samaria:  You probably know that I go out prayer walking around the village every day.

This morning, I saw a bumper sticker that stood out to me.  What a smile!

This guy is special, and deeply missed by his family. Liel was just 20 years old at the time.

The morning of Aug 1, 2014, around 7 or 9:30 AM, terrorists from Gaza suddenly emerged from a terror tunnel dug by Hamas, with materials financed by Iran.  It was an ambush against the Israeli soldiers, less than 72 hours after the US and the UN had brokered a cease-fire.


An example of bumper stickers in Israel. This one is a memory of the late Sgt Liel Gideoni, from Jerusalem, who served in the Givati Brigade of the IDF; Gidoni was killed on Aug 1, 2014 in an ambush in southern Gaza shortly after the “cease fire” was announced.

With English letters, Liel’s surname is sometimes spelled with or without the “e.”

Liel Gideoni was posthumously promoted to Sergeant.
