Ron Benjamin

53

Ron Benjamin was taking part in a group bicycle ride near the Gaza border. When the Hamas attack began, he spoke with his wife, Ayelet, and left a message on his daughter’s phone, telling them he decided to drive home.
Ron hasn’t returned home since.
Since October 7th, the family has been told by the army to prepare themselves for the idea that they may never find out what happened to Ron, who was considered “missing,” and not a hostage in Gaza.
“He’s not showing up anywhere,” said Ron’s older brother, Shuki Benjamin, in an interview with Ynet. “There are no signs that he was killed.” Days later, his vehicle was found empty and other evidence showed that he was kidnapped into Gaza. “It looks like he left that car alive,” said Shuki.
On December 2nd, almost two months after Hamas’ murderous assault on the gaza border communities, the Benjamin family was notified by the IDF that Ron is indeed held hostage in Gaza.

On May 18, 2024, the IDF announced that it had recovered the body of Ron Benjamin from Gaza. Ron, a 53-year-old father of two, was killed by Hamas near Kibbutz Mefalsim on October 7, 2023, after being abducted by Hamas terrorists. He was returning home from a canceled bike ride near the Gaza border when the attack began. His body was taken to Gaza by Hamas.
Ron’s body was recovered during an overnight operation on Thursday, along with the bodies of Itzhak Gelerenter, Amit Buskila, and Shani Louk. All four were killed by Hamas inside Israel on October 7, and their bodies were abducted and taken to northern Gaza.
Ron’s family, friends, and community are devastated by this immense loss.
