Maksym Molchanov HYD. was killed in a terror attack on August 31, 2023.

An IDF soldier was murdered, and a number of additional people were wounded in a ramming terror attack near the Maccabim checkpoint outside Modi’in on Thursday morning around 9 AM. Three of the wounded are soldiers.

The murdered soldier was identified as 20-year-old lone soldier, corporal Maksym Molchanov.  He was posthumously awarded the rank of sergeant. Molchanov made Aliyah by himself from the Ukraine in 2017 at age 14. He was drafted in 2022 and served in the 282nd artillery brigade.  He lived in Herzliya. His family in the Ukraine were notified.


MDA and United Hatzalah EMTs are providing medical treatment and evacuating the injured, in their 20s, to the hospital. Two are in serious condition, and one is in mild condition. A United Hatzalah ambulance is at the scene.

The terrorist was eliminated (hear the Arab cameraman mumbling after the gunshot sound, “Allah will have mercy on him”) near the Hashmonaim checkpoint, after the terrorist succeeded in fleeing the site of the attack.

MDA Paramedic Avi Schiff reported: “We arrived at the scene with large forces and saw 3 young men, one of them unconscious and suffering from stomach and head injuries. We immediately provided them life-saving medical treatment in the field and evacuated them in Mobile Intensive Care Units to the hospital, with one in critical condition, one in serious condition, and the third in mild condition.”
