Sigal and Ofer Cohen were among the many visitors who came to pay their respects to the Malka family as they were sitting Shiva for their daughter, border policewoman Hadas Malka. The Cohens share a tragic fate with the Malkas. Their daughter, border policewoman Hadar Cohen, was also killed in a terror attack at the Damascus Gate in Jerusalem.
