The Defense Ministry has decided that  the words "fell in battle" will be added to Tuvia Yanai Weissman's gravestone, who was murdered in a terrorist attack last month.

The ministry made the decision after it found that as result of  Weissman's altercation with his attackers, they were ultimately apprehended by Israeli security forces.

This decision came after Weissman's widow Yael demanded that the Defense Ministry recognize that her husband fell in battle.
