The funeral for Israeli Air Force Major Ohad Cohen Nov’s funeral has been set for Friday, October 7, at 11 am in the Moshav Mazor Cemetery.
Cohen Nov was killed while ejecting from his burning F-16 Sufa fighter jet as it crash-landed at Ramon Air Force Base in the Negev on Wednesday. The pilot’s navigator managed to eject safely, although he sustained some injuries and was evacuated to a medical center for treatment.
The tragedy occurred upon his return from a successful air strike on Hamas terrorist targets in Gaza in response to rocket fire that was aimed at the southern Israeli town of Sderot earlier in the day.
A high-level IAF commission of inquiry into the accident has been launched.
