A sixth Canadian citizen is confirmed to have died during the Oct. 7 Hamas attack on Israel that killed 1,400.

Tiferet Lapidot, 23, had been missing since attending a musical festival where Hamas gunmen killed more than 260 people.

The family was notified overnight that she was dead, according to a Facebook posted by the municipality leader in her hometown, Harish.

“Hope is dashed,” Mayor Isaac Keshet wrote. “Our sincere condolences to her parents Ohad and Short Lapidot. The municipality will accompany the family and help in all possible ways.”
