Tel Aviv — Eyal Waldman said goodbye to his youngest daughter Thursday, 24-year-old Danielle Waldman.

“Today, we buried my daughter, my youngest daughter, Danielle,” Waldman told CBS News foreign correspondent Charlie D’Agata. “She was an amazing girl, only 24, and never done anything bad to anyone.”

Danielle Waldman, a California native, and her boyfriend, Noam Shai, were fatally shot while trying to flee the Supernova trance music festival in the southern Israeli desert as Hamas militants invaded the region from the Gaza Strip in the early morning hours of Oct. 7.

They were among at least 260 festivalgoers who were killed in the surprise attack, according to Israeli officials.

“They were attacked by five terrorists from two sides, three from behind,” Waldman said of Danielle and Shai. 

Footage of their bullet-riddled car showed the ferocity of the attack.

In December 2019, “60 Minutes” profiled Eyal Waldman. At the time, the high-tech executive was building his business by building bridges, employing Palestinians in the West Bank for his leading computer chip company.

“I want to strive for peace,” Waldman told “60 Minutes” at the time. “I want to engage with the Palestinians. But if I think you are threatening any of what’s important to me, I will kill you.”

Now, having lost what’s more important to him than anything, the former Israeli commando says those behind the attack should pay the price.

“You know, for the short term, we need to resolve this thing,” Waldman said. “Maybe not in a peaceful way. And we need to show force, and we need to be strong.”
