Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's wife, Sarah Netanyahu, today (Wednesday) paid condolence visits to the family members of the two lone soldiers who have fallen during Operation Protective Edge - Nissim Sean Carmeli, HY"D and Max Steinberg, HY"D.
Mrs. Netanyahu conveyed to the respective family members that the nation of Israel embraces them as they endure these difficult times. "Your sons fell while protecting their home," she said, adding, "there is no war that is more justified than this one. In the name of my husband, myself, and the entire Jewish nation, we embrace you in our wishes to comfort you as you endure this horrendous loss of your sons - our sons."
She then added that "these boys are a source of pride. They wanted to make Aliyah to Israel, alone, and then serve their country as lone soldiers, and fought the battle to protect their home."
