Life Story

Lior Sivan, son of Dan and Adina, was born in Melbourne, Australia. He was a mechanical engineer, who was known for his inventions. He invented a chair for people with a disability that allowed them to be independent in water, and a charging cable to charge a mobile phone in a tank. The 32-year-old reserve officer had been called up hours after October 7, according to ABC News, and had only left the Gaza Strip briefly a few times since then. Fellow soldiers told the family that Lior was in a tank with another tank alongside him. The tank’s driver told him that he could see that a Hamas terrorist was putting an explosive device on the tank next to theirs. “Instead of trying to maneuver and shoot him from inside the tank, he didn’t think of his wife and his son. He was a hero. He opened the hatch and rose up to shoot him. He was killed immediately. But he saved the four men in the other tank and possibly the other three in his own tank.” Lior is survived by his wife Liav, who was pregnant with their second child, their son, his parents, and three siblings. He was buried at the Beit Shemesh Cemetery in the Military Section.
