Nibin Maxwell, a native of Kaikulangara in Kollam municipal corporation in Kerala, moved to Israel two months ago to work on a farm.

Nibin Maxwell, the 31-year-old Kerala man killed in a missile attack in northern Israel, is survived by his wife and a five-year-old daughter. Nibin’s wife is also seven months pregnant, deceased’s father, Pathrose Maxwell, told News18.

“Around 4:30pm, my daughter in-law called me and informed that Nibin has met with an accident. A relative informed them about the accident. It was at midnight when we were informed about our son’s death,” Pathrose said.

The father added that he has three children — two are in Israel and one is working in Abu Dhabi. “My elder son (Nivin) is saying that the body should be in India within four days as they have to contact the embassy,” Nibin’s father further said.

A relative of Nibin in Kollam was quoted by Indian Express as saying, “Before the incident, Nibin spoke to his father and shared his concern about the volatile situation in the region. He told his father that they (the Kerala natives employed on the farm) were planning to move to another location.”

Nibin Maxwell, a native of Kaikulangara in Kollam municipal corporation in Kerala, moved to Israel two months ago to work on a farm. Along with him two other, Joseph and Paul Melvin, were injured in the attack at a moshav, a collective agricultural community in northern Israel.

“The missile hit a plantation in Margaliot, a moshav (collective agricultural community), in the Galilee region in the north of Israel around 11 am on Monday,” Zaki Heller, spokesperson for rescue services Magen David Adom (MDA), was quoted by PTI.

Bush Joseph George, 31, and Paul Melvin, 28, were injured and taken to hospitals for treatment, they said. “George was taken to the Beilinson hospital in Petah Tikva after suffering injuries on face and body. He underwent an operation, is recovering well, and has been kept under observation. He could speak with his family in India,” an official source told PTI.

Embassy of Israel in New Delhi said: “We are deeply shocked and saddened by the death of one Indian national and the injury of two others due to a cowardly terror attack launched by Shia Terror organisation Hezbollah, on peaceful agriculture workers who were cultivating an orchard at the northern village of Margaliot yesterday early afternoon.”

“Our prayers and thoughts naturally go to the families of the bereaved and those of the injured. Israeli Medical institutions are completely at the service of the injured who are being treated by our very best medical staff,” it posted on X.
