Prime Minister consoles bereaved families while wife Sara comforts crash victims
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met on Thursday with representatives of families who have lost loved ones in the recent wave of terrorist attacks.
The representatives of the families wanted to look into the possibility of deporting terrorists’ families to the Gaza Strip and reducing the time it takes to demolish terrorists’ homes.
Also on Thursday, Netanyahu’s wife, Sara, and Health Minister Yakov Litzman went to Assaf Harofeh Medical Center to visit Sarah Sperling, 20, who was seriously injured this week in a bus crash on Highway 1 that left six people dead.
Sara Netanyahu embraced Sperling’s parents and said, “God willing, I hope that we’ll be able to rejoice at your daughter’s wedding a few weeks from now. There was a combination of divine intervention and an excellent team of doctors, with a lot of heart and soul.”
Netanyahu and Litzman also visited the medical center’s director general, Dr. Benny Davidson, and actor Yossi Gerber, who is hospitalized in the facility’s Intensive Care Unit.
