Sharing this story with Healing Ink was the first time he shared his story with his 14 year old son. EyalI was wounded twice during an operational service in Lebanon. For the first time in the explosion of a car bomb in Bint Jbeil. Terrorists had loaded a car with explosives and drove it into there car. Eyal's life was saved because the terrorist's car had mechanical issues and exploded before getting to the ramming point. The bombs still had enough power to throw him 20 meters in the air. The second time from a side charge that was detonated on a convoy of vehicles on the way to Bint Jbeil when he and his troop were attacked by guns and grenades. He was injured but there were others in worse condition so he stayed to help, refusing to be evacuated. Today, he has chronic back and nerve pain.
Eyal was tattooed October 28, 2018 by artist Arad at Tel Aviv City Hall.
