Rivlin and Betzaleli Family to Light Torch Together


The family of Second Lieutenant Hila Betzaleli, who was killed in last week's collapse of a lighting standard during a rehearsal for Independence Day events at Mount Herzl in Jerusalem, will accompany Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin when he addresses an Independence Day Eve ceremony and light the Speaker's Torch with him.

Rivlin and the Betzaleli family decided on the joint action during the speaker's condolence call, Monday morning.
