The three police officers killed in the Carmel forest on Wednesday received their posthumous medals of distinction in a ceremony at the Jerusalem International Convention Center. Earlier in the day, family members of Prisons Service employees, who also died in the fire, held a protest asking to postpone the awards ceremony until after the state comptroller completes the investigation into the events.

During the ceremony, Israel Police Insp.-Gen. Dudi Cohen handed medals of distinction to the families of three police officers, Asst.- Cmdr. Ahuva Tomer, Asst.-Cmdr. Lior Boker and Ch.-Supt. Itzik Malina for bravery in the line of duty

Tomer's partner, Danny Rosen, said after receiving the award: "With much sorrow and pain, I also have great pride to receive the honor."
