The article included the names and brief biographies of the soldiers as well as an interview with Omer Gottlieb, the older brother of fallen soldier Sgt. Matan Gottlieb.

Gottlieb told the newspaper his brother had enjoyed mountain climbing and had planned to travel the world.

“Do you know many older brothers who look up to their younger brothers?” he asked.

The article was written by reporter Anne-Christine Merholz, who described the soldiers as “64 sons, friends, husbands, who will never return to their families. They fell fighting Hamas in Gaza on behalf of their homeland.”
