IDF St.-Sgt. Maj. Ihab Khatib, 26, a member of the Kfir Brigade, was laid to rest in the mostly Druse village of Maghar in the Galilee early Thursday evening.
Khatib was stabbed and killed by a Palestinian Authority police officer on Wednesday, while he was sitting in a military jeep in a traffic jam near the Tapuah junction in Samaria.
Maj. Tomer Levi, the solder's direct commander, and the commander of the Kfir Brigade, Col. Oren Abman, were among hundreds of people who attended the funeral.
