Perlman was survived by children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

With Perlman’s death, the number of Israelis killed by Hamas attacks on the country during Operation Guardian of the Walls increased to 13, including Staff Sgt. Omer Tabib of the Nahal Brigade and three foreign workers, one of whom was Perlman’s caregiver, an Indian citizen who was killed by the rocket.

The IDF’s counter-terrorism campaign began on May 10 with a Hamas rocket attack on Jerusalem. Hamas and the Islamic Jihad fired almost 4,400 rockets at Israel.

The Israeli Air Force (IAF) responded by hitting 1,500 terror targets across the Gaza Strip during the 11-day operation, marking the IDF’s largest strike since Operation Protective Edge 2014. The IDF also neutralized hundreds of Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists.
