The first Spanish victim of the war between Israel and Gaza, Maya Villalobo Sinvany, was buried in the Givatayim military cemetery, east of Tel Aviv (Israel). Now, images of her funeral held on October 13 have been released.

Maya Villalobo Sinvany, 19 years old, with dual Spanish-Israeli nationality, was doing military service at the Nahal Oz base, near the Gaza Strip. Her father is Eduardo Villalobo, Spanish professor of Microbiology at the University of Seville; and her mother Galit Silvany, an Israeli researcher. The last time the young woman had contact with her family was at 9:30 on October 7, when Hamas terrorists attacked the base, but her death was not confirmed until October 11, after the Israeli army identified her body. At first, the Spanish Minister of Foreign Affairs, José Manuel Albares, declared her missing, as well as Iván Illarramendi, 46 years old and a native of Zarautz (Gipuzkoa), kidnapped by Hamas along with his wife, Chilean nationality.
