Arsenal fan Jake moved to Israel in 2021

It has been claimed that a total of 17 British nationals are feared dead or missing.

Also among those known to have died is Nathanel Young, 20, who was serving in the Israeli army when he was killed during Hamas’s charge.

Nathanel attended the same school as Jack.

His funeral on Mount Herzl in Jerusalem was live-streamed by Cockfosters and North Southgate Synagogue.

An Israeli couple have named their baby after Nathanel — despite not knowing him.

Yehudis Kalish Sanders tweeted: “Welcome to the world, Netanel Eitan. We feel so blessed to be your parents. I felt strongly about this name for a few months due to its beautiful meaning but was hesitant until yesterday when we heard about Nathanel Young, a lone soldier from the UK who died serving our country.

“Once I heard his name, I knew for sure that this name was meant for our son. We pray that our Netanel will preserve his memory and comfort his family and Am Yisrael.”
