President Rivlin Pays Condolence Visit to Maman Family


President Reuven Rivlin today (Sunday) paid a condolence visit to the family of Netanel Maman, Hy"d, who passed away from wounds he suffered during a mortar attack during Protective Edge. 

Both Netanel and his brother were injured when the vehicle they were in was hit by a rocket. Netanel was critically injured, and passed away after a hard week of his fighting for his life.

"I have come to offer condolences on behalf of the whole nation, for you have paid the ultimate price that can be imagined with this heartbreaking loss of life," Rivlin said.
