The UK government has said “at least” nine British nationals were killed in Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel on 7 October.

It says a further seven are missing, some of whom are feared dead or are being held hostage in Gaza.

The stories of those who have lost their lives are still emerging.

These are the victims we have learned about so far.

British-Israeli Yonatan Rapoport was murdered in the Hamas attack on kibbutz Be’eri, southern Israel.

The father-of-two, known to his friends as Yoni, leaves behind children Yosefi and Aluma.

He was a fan of the Premier League football team Manchester United and was planning to go to Old Trafford – the team’s home ground in north-west England – next month for his son’s first game there.

British-born Lianne Sharabi was found dead after the Hamas attack on Kibbutz Be’eri, her family told the BBC.

Her two daughters – Noiya, 16, and Yahel, 13 – were missing in the days that followed. It was confirmed on 17 October that Yahel had been killed. Noiya is still missing.

Lianne was born in the UK but started a new life in southern Israel after marrying husband Eli. He is also missing.

In a statement, their British family called Lianne the “light of our family’s life”.

“She had a wonderful, caring nature. She would help anyone in trouble – be it physical, emotional or financial, she would be there for them. She was funny, with a dry sense of humour,” they said.
