During the last war, in Gaza for only a week, he went to clear an area with known terrorists. They went to enter a house and it was boobytrapped. The first 4 soldiers died instantly and Bar and others were ripped with shrapnel. Because he could still walk on one leg, Bar started performing medical procedures and trying to evacuate the more injured soldiers until help arrived.
Bar was tattooed October 28, 2019 by artist Ryan Ashley Malarkey at Tel Aviv City Hall.
