IDF soldier Tuvia Yanai Weissman, 21, who was murdered by two Palestinian teens in a stabbing attack at a supermarket in the West Bank's Binyamin region on Thursday was due to be buried Friday morning at Mount Herzl Cemetery in Jerusalem.

The Nahal Brigade member and married father of a four-month-old baby girl, was pronounced dead at Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem.
