Keren Kayemet Leisrael - Jewish National Fund (KKL-JNF) World Chairman Efi Stenzler announced Saturday that the organization will dedicate an area in the Carmel as a memorial to IDF soldier Majdi Halabi, whose remains were recently found in a forest near Usfiya.

Stenzler said that the memorial would be a testament to the strong relationship and alliance between the Druse community, whose sons serve in the IDF, and the state of Israel and KKL-JNF.



The announcement was made during a visit to the former soldier's family, after which Halabi's father expressed his gratitude, telling Stenzler that "KKL-JNF is a member of our family and we greatly appreciate the gesture."

Majdi Halabi went missing without a trace in May 2005; a Carmel resident discovered his remains two weeks ago.
