Vancouver: Premier David Eby says he can’t imagine what it must be like for the family and friends of a B.C. man killed by Hamas militants in Israel.

Ben Mizrachi was killed along with at least 260 others in southern Israel while attending a music festival.

Eby says what was meant to be a wonderful celebration turned into a tragedy.

The 22-year-old is one of at least two Canadians killed in the Israel-Palestinian war set off Saturday as Hamas militants moved into Israel.

Federal Conservative leader Pierre Poilievre and NDP leader Jagmeet Singh sent their condolences to his family.
