Son of Nada and Salman. He was born on October 30, 1975 in the Druze village of Isfiya. Brother to Ravidah, spa and wafi. When he was six months old, the family moved to Eilat. Asim visited the kindergarten and attended an elementary school in Eilat in grades 1 and 2 and was a good and successful student. In 1982, the family returned to Isfiya and Asim attended elementary school in the village and continued to the local ORT Ronson High School. Lassim, with the conquering smile, had a strong tendency for practicality. He decided to leave school and focus on work and began working in gardening in the surrounding communities. Aces was a ‘king’ in his work as a gardener. He performed his duties with dedication and loyalty and acquired many friends among those who worked with them. “Aces was a symbol of life and action,” his employer testified, “the highest virtue of a man is his kindness and his willingness to help and support others even in times of distress and distress – it was a miracle in my eyes … a kind boy who was willing to support and help even when others had broken “The responsibility he discovered in every job and mission amazed me and made me and my family feel safe and there was someone to rely on when Assim was around, and we had enough eyes to understand each other and the task would be done.” Asim joined the IDF in December 1993. He completed a course in basic training, was promoted to the rank of sergeant and served in the Minorities Unit, and returned to work in gardening. He served as a combat soldier in the auxiliary company of the “Harav” battalion in the Galilee formation of the Northern Command. After a short period of time he was appointed to the post of sergeant. Thanks to his excellence and as a sign of the great appreciation of his commanders, he was sent to a parachuting course as a ‘chopper’. Assim, who was promoted to the rank of sergeant, performed his duties in a remarkable manner, as testified by the battalion commander: “One of the best sergeants in the battalion was designated as a plan Long-term service in the unit.
