The widow of Yosef Yosefia, who was murdered in Ramat Gan, recreates the moments of horror

Yossi Yosefia was murdered last Saturday, when his father-in-law’s father arrived at his home amid a divorce dispute between their children and allegedly shot him to death. This morning (Monday), Libby, the late Yossi’s widow, spoke with Golan Yokfaz and Nissim Mashaal on 103FM, and recounted her husband’s last moments, and how she, her daughter and granddaughter also looked death in the eyes: “The three of us stood in the doorway, we watched, and he heard that We opened the door and then he took his gun and aimed it at us. I saw the killer’s eyes inside my eyes. “

“Yossi went to the synagogue, told me that when he came back he would make me the salad I love. The groom’s father knew when Yossi would come, he waited with the weapon for Yossi to come back. “Apparently they got on the elevator, Yossi fell there. Apparently Yossi picked up the weapon, apparently scared and did not want him to enter our house, he was afraid of me, the children and the grandchildren,” Libby said.

She then described how she, her daughter and 12-year-old granddaughter also witnessed the horror at the incident: “They went out and then we heard gunshots. He just managed to get out of the elevator door because there he fell and was covered in blood. We were in the kitchen, waiting for Yossi, for Shabbat breakfast to come and perform a kiddush and we heard shots. My eldest daughter said, ‘Mom has shots.’Ya ran to the front door and my grandson ran with her and I followed them. The three of us stood in the doorway, looked, and he (the groom’s father) heard that we had opened the door and then he took his gun and aimed it at us. I saw the killer’s eyes inside my eyes. I realized that when he aimed his weapon, he wanted to shoot us“.

“Yossi shouted, he was still alive as soon as he aimed the gun at us, Yossi shouted, ‘Save me, help me.’ I pulled my daughter and my grandson in and immediately closed the door, and we heard the shot, a shot that hit the door. He can not lie, there is evidence. After the shot he fired at the door, that he failed to hit us, my grandson said, ‘Grandma, he killed Grandpa, he wanted to kill me too. He looked at me and aimed his weapon downwards, he aimed at me. After he shot us intentionally first, we heard two more shots, he wanted to make a murder confirmation on poor husband Yossi, this righteous man. He wanted to make sure he was eliminated so he could no longer pick us up. “

Libby told of her relationship with her late husband, before he was murdered: “We are a couple from the age of 15, he was born to raise a big family and give love. He taught me values, respect for mother and father. He was just for his family, he just wanted to respect his parents. He wanted me to be queen all the time, he wanted his children and grandchildren to just be good. He only loved us and the synagogue, that’s what he knew in his life. “

She added that “Yossi was our mainstay, he made me the queen of the house, he made his children kings and princes. This man just came to make a massacre here. Yossi Yosefia, my dear and righteous husband, protected us with his body.”

According to her, the 12-year-old who foresaw his grandfather kills his other grandfather, suffers and even vomits at night from the stress: “He is being treated by a psychologist. He is 12 years old soon, he keeps saying ‘how can this be?’. He has screams and vomiting from the stress, He says “Grandpa murdered my good grandfather. He is a murderer, I want Grandpa Yossi, why did he take Grandpa Yossi from me?” There is a 12-year-old boy who sees his grandfather aiming a gun at him and shoots. Not only direction, he shot, there is evidence on the door“.

She even mentioned that Yossi will be accompanying another daughter to the canopy ceremony soon: “” He has been waiting so long. My daughter is 32, he has been waiting for this day, the big one he will have to stand under the canopy. He had already arranged everything, he even took the synagogue to do Shabbat Chatan there. He wanted everything for the good of the children. A righteous man has left us. I do not know how I will proceed from here. He was my guide, he was a lift. ”

At the end of the conversation, Libby made it clear that she was not willing to hear from her daughter-in-law’s family: “We do not want to hear from this family at all. Yossi wanted to take care of my son-in-law all the time, he loved him like a son.” “That you know about me, I love you so much.” But his father took Yossi from us, he took our Tzaddik from us. “

The suspect’s lawyer: “His explanation is human, the gun was not on him but in the holster”

Meanwhile, lawyer Guy Maimon, who represents the murder suspect, came up to respond to the family’s claims on 103FM and insisted that the suspect did not intend to kill: “His explanation was human, the intention was not to shoot or confront. The gun was not on his body, but in the holster.” .

According to attorney Maimon, the two grandparents talked about the relationship between the deceased’s son and daughter and conducted themselves mostly in good spirits: “The gun was not on his body and he did not carry it and he did not threaten him with the gun in the elevator. There was a confrontation between the deceased and him at one point. “The conversation between them was a good conversation, there was a certain moment when the conversation became a little less good, and then the deceased, according to my client, started pushing him, started teasing him, and when he took out the gun at some point, the gun didn’t even have a cartridge.”

Peleg and Golan responded that if there was no cartridge, he would have loaded the gun and fired with deliberate intent. Advocate replied that “” I do not yet know how to tell you what was in these little details. These things should be clarified in the police. No one was in danger of death. The discourse in the elevator was a good discourse, the intention was good. The development of the incident was a momentary development that happened after “That they got out of the elevator. At the moment, the police are not telling me exactly where the incident took place. What I understand from my client is that everything that happened was outside the elevator.”

The lawyer even added that his client claims that the first shot was a mere ejection of a bullet. Peleg and Golan made it difficult and said that he also confirmed the killing, which led the lawyer to say that “I do not have the autopsy, these things need to be clarified in the investigation. There is no doubt that the result is tragic, by the way for them and the whole family. A grandfather who hurt his grandfather. ”

On the family’s claim that after murdering Yossi, he aimed and fired at them: “” It came up during the hearing. He denies it outright, he also said it to the court, he stood up and said, ‘I will not hurt my grandchildren. “This is unthinkable.”
