Muhammad Abu Khdeir, the 16-year-old Palestinian from the east Jerusalem village of Shuafat who was burned to death last summer by nationalist Jewish Israelis in a revenge attack following the kidnapping of three teenage yeshiva students near Hebron last year, has been added to the list of names that appears on the memorial plaque on Mt. Herzl commemorating the civilians who died in terrorist attacks this past year.

Following the indictment of the three men suspected of carrying out the murder, the Defense Ministry recognized Abu Khdeir as a victim of hostile action, granting his family identical compensation rights to those of victims of Arab terror, such as victims of suicide bombings.

Abu Khdeir’s name has also been added to the official state website listing terror victims run jointly by the National Insurance Institute and the Welfare Ministry.
