As Shabbat ended, many comforters came to the family's home, including Mayor Shai Rosenzweig. "We are all shocked and saddened by the passing of a member of the community, an outstanding officer," said the head of the council.
In the battle in which Captain Eden Provisor fell, a soldier from the 52nd Battalion was seriously wounded. Earlier this evening (Saturday night), the IDF Spokesperson authorized the publication of the death of six soldiers in battle in the northern Gaza Strip, including Captain Provisor.
"Was a leader wherever it was"
"Eden was an armored officer who fought from the first moments of the war in Gaza. Unfortunately, yesterday (Friday), the tank he was transporting was hit and as a result he was killed. He was a rooted child, a moral child, a true fighter. He loved his country and wanted to protect it. Do it with dedication and professionalism. He would lead wherever he was. His family is an old veteran of the community. The father was also an armored officer. We are shocked. The community suffered a lot in this campaign. Both abductees, murdered, martyrs and a missile that hit a house in the community."
Eden recently entered permanent service. He was supposed to go to a company commanders' course. He
is survived by his parents, a brother and two sisters.
The council said: "We mourn the loss of Capt. Eden Provisor and embrace his family."
