Ravit Attias, who worked with Eyal: "He is a very large farmer and is considered one of the largest in Moshav Netua. He was born and seated in his full being. He has three grown children, and his wife Shoshi is his right-hand man in the business. "Farmers from Moshav Netua are not willing to leave the farm," he said. He's the kind of farmer who wasn't willing to give up. It's still hard to digest. And not believing it happened, there's no one who doesn't know him in the area."

Shuki Regev, Eyal's neighbor and friend: "Eyal grew up farming. He lived in Netua and at some point moved to Kibbutz Gesher HaZiv and every day to his orchards and chicken coop. A farmer who did not give up cultivating his land and was not willing to abandon the farm. My wife talked to him that it was dangerous but the earth was in his veins and he couldn't leave the plantations, this was his life, he couldn't sit and watch his life's work go untreated. At the beginning of the war, they evacuated and he consulted me about whether to return. He wasn't afraid to cultivate the land."
