    • Ronnie Franco Hello,
      Their names are listed at the beginning of the article, of course.
      Welcome to read…

  1. Hello Yoram,
    Thank you for your attention.
    I checked with the Defense Heritage organization and this is their response: "The request from the families arrived recently. Checking the data takes some time and most importantly - we found it appropriate to present the signal at an honorable event to the families and the general public."

  2. Respect to the Druze community and respect to the Hagana members organization that knows how to cherish.
    I hope we manage to maintain, and even expand, this important alliance.
    Thanks Yael for another interesting article.
