Family of Soldier Missing from Grave Demand Investigation


The family of fallen soldier Zion Tayeb, who fell in the Yom Kippur War, has demanded an investigation following their realization that their late son’s remains were not his casket at Har Herzl.

The IDF claimed that Tayeb had been killed in 1974 and buried in a mass grave before being transferred to a permanent grave at Har Herzl. The soldier’s empty casket insinuates otherwise.
