Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu visited soldiers at Beersheba's Soroka Medical Center on Monday afternoon. "You are the best of our sons," he told the wounded. "You are doing holy work in defending the citizens of Israel. The entire nation is behind you." To the families he said, "On behalf of the citizens of Israel, thank you for educating them to love our homeland."
"You are doing holy work for those who fought for all of us," he praised the medical staff.
The prime minster met with a wounded Nahal Brigade officer who volunteered for combat duty despite a medical problem, wishing him a quick and full recovery.
