Kin of Kerala woman killed in rocket strike in Israel, still in shock
They cannot believe that they will never be able to see her again.
They never imagined such a tragic end to Soumya, who worked as a caregiver for an elderly woman in Ashkelon in that country, although she had often shared her anguish with them about massive firings in the Israeli territory by the Palestinian militants.
''He is awaiting her call,'' Santhosh told reporters here, while holding back his tears.
Little did she knew that it would be her last call.
As she was sharing the details of the war-like situation prevailing in the area, Santhosh heard a huge sound on the other end.
Her phone, which was still connected, had fallen down.
''I uttered ''hello, hello'' over the phone, but there was no response from the other side.
After a minute-and-a-half, I could hear the noise of some people on the other end. The phone was still connected,'' Santhosh said.
Muraleeedharan said he had telephoned the family of Soumya on Tuesday night to convey his condolences.
''I just spoke to the family of Ms. Soumya Santosh, the victim of the Hamas terrorist strike. I expressed my sorrow for their unfortunate loss & extended my condolences on behalf of the state of Israel. The whole country is mourning her loss & we are here for them'', he tweeted.
''My heart goes out to her 9-year-old son, Adon, who has lost his mother at such a young age and will have to grow up without her. This evil attack reminds me of little Moses, who also lost his parents during the 2008 #Mumbaiattacks. May God give them strength and courage'', he said in the tweet on Wednesday.
