President Reuven Rivlin and First Lady Nechama Rivlin on Tuesday welcomed soldiers from the Police counter-terrorism unit and Rambo the dog, who were involved in the capture of the terrorist responsible for the attack at Barkan industrial zone in which Kim Levengrond-Yehezkel and Ziv Hajbi were murdered.

Rambo, a Belgian Shepherd who is nearly five years old, was born at the Police counter-terrorism unit and has been involved in operations since he was a year and a half old. When he was two, he was injured and after a year of recovery he returned to active duty, as he will when he recovers from the injuries he sustained in the recent operation in Shechem (Nablus).

The president thanked the soldiers and Rambo for their contribution to Israel’s security.

“Outstanding soldiers are invited to the President’s Residence. From time to time, it’s a real pleasure to meet outstanding dogs here, too. Look after yourselves. You do vital work and we all thank you for it.”
