"Anywhere I Can't Help The People of Israel-I'll Do It"

"The memory of another IDF casualty, Maj. Benaya Sarel, who was killed in Operation Protective Edge, fought in the Gaza Strip in 2014, will be carried on in a unique manner when his younger brother, David Sarel -- currently a combat soldier in the Givati Brigade -- donates bone marrow.

"David Sarel, 20, is currently enrolled in officers' training. When he enlisted in the military, he also registered with the Ezer Mizion national bone marrow donor database. Less than three weeks later, Benaya was killed in an ambush when terrorists jumped out of the entrance to a tunnel in Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip."

"David was informed that he was a match on Tuesday, the eve of Israel's Memorial Day for Fallen Soldiers and Victims of Terrorism. The procedure is expected to take place in the next few days."

"This donation is a choice to keep going. Anywhere I can help the people of Israel, I'll do it," he explained."
