Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Tuesday comforted the parents of Gabi Ingel, the Israeli tourist who was found dead as a result of the devastating earthquake that hit Christchurch, New Zealand last week.
During a telephone conversation, Netanyahu said "We are grieving and crying with you. All the people of Israel closely followed the attempts to locate your son."
Ingel's father commented on the aid and support they received. "The only thing that consoles us is that we met so many good people in Israel, who helped us and turned the world upside-down to try and find Gabi. "
