Presiden Reuven Rivlin met on Friday with Jean Berman, who was injured by shrapnel from a rocket that landed near a kindergarten in the Eshkol Region Council on Thursday night.

Rivlin lauded Berman as a hero for trying to protect the young children in the building despite his injury, and wished him a speedy recovery.

"We are all fathers, we are all grandfather and your vigilance and readiness to protect children is astonishing," the president said.
