”Almost a decade ago I got into the IAF Commander’s exclusive “fini flight” celebration. The head of the IAF Spokesperson’s Office at the time told to me he didnt mind me being around the event, with one caveat – “Make sure you dont get in Roni’s way” I made sure not to.Having been in the field with him on many occasions, it was very hard to get a picture of him without a cigarette. It was also pretty amazing to see a 70 yo running around giving everyone orders just like the Battalion CO he once was. Rest in Peace Roni…..Yissachar Ruas Photography expressed his grief on social media.
