MK Stern Welcomes Change to Pennant for Fallen Project

Member of Knesset Elazar Stern welcomed, Friday morning, the announcement that Chief of Staff Benny Gantz will also place a small Israeli flag on the grave of a fallen non-Jewish soldier as part of the Pennant for the Fallen Project, starting with next year's observances related to Memorial Day.

Lieutenant-General Gantz apologized after bypassing a non-Jewish soldier's grave during Thursday's observance.
