Kerala Man’s killed in Israel: A Pregnant Widow and Four-Year-Old Daughter Mourn


Just two months have passed since the 31-year-old Indian man died in a missile attack close to the Israel-Lebanon border. He was living in Kollam, Kerala. His wife, who was expecting, and their five-year-old daughter waved him off. They had no idea that it would be their last goodbye.

Pat Nibin Maxwell perished yesterday in Margaliot, north of Israel, when a rocket struck close to an orchard. The attack also injured two other people, who were from Kerala. Two Idukki residents, Paul Melvin and Bush Joseph George, are receiving medical care in an Israeli hospital.

The “cowardly terror attack launched by Shia terror organization Hezbollah on peaceful agriculture workers who were cultivating an orchard” has been denounced by the Israeli embassy in India. Maxwell’s brother has met with Israel’s envoy to India, Naor Gilon, who has assured him of all assistance.

According to Nibin’s father Pathrose, the 31-year-old went to Israel with his older brother. “After visiting Dubai and Muscat, he went back home. He then traveled to Israel. My older son went there first. My youngest son came about a week later,” he stated.

Pathrose Maxwell claimed that his daughter-in-law informed him of the news. “On Monday at 4:30 p.m., she gave me a call to let me know that Nibin had been hurt in the attack and was being treated at the hospital. We learned of his death later, around 12:45 in the morning.”

The horrified father revealed that his wife is seven months pregnant with their second child, and Nibin has left behind a daughter who is four and a half years old.

Following paperwork and regulations, Nibin’s body is anticipated to be returned to Kerala in four days.

Following the initial Indian loss in the Israel-Hamas conflict, New Delhi has released a warning to Indian nationals residing in Israel.

“All Indian nationals residing in Israel are encouraged to relocate to safe places due to the current security situation and local safety advisories. This is especially important for individuals who work in or visit border areas in the north and south. The Indian embassy in Israel has stated, “The Embassy stays in contact with the Israeli authorities to ensure the safety of all our nationals.”

Since the start of the conflict, the Shia branch of Hezbollah has supported Hamas in northern Israel with missile and drone strikes.

The strikes on Israeli cities on October 7 sparked an Israel-Hamas conflict that has raged for almost five months. The Gaza Strip has seen thousands of deaths as a result of Tel Aviv’s ruthless counterattack. According to New Delhi, the violence and the ensuing humanitarian situation are extremely troubling.
