Nassi Nachman, the father of Capt. Tal Nachman, who was killed by friendly fire late Monday night, said "my son was just about to start a new position, and the mission he was in last night was supposed to be his last."
The father said he spoke with Tal on Saturday and since then he didn't have time to speak. "We're still trying to digest this difficult piece of news." (Itay Blumenthal)
