Tourism Minister Stas Misezhnikov told the families of the victims of the terror attack in Bulgaria on Thursday night that he hoped the attack would be “yours and our last disaster.”
Misezhnikov spoke on behalf of the government in a state ceremony at the Ben Gurion Airport, after the coffins of the five victims landed in Israel. The coffins were brought to Israel on a plane belonging to the Israeli Air Force. Before the minister spoke, IDF Chief Rabbi Rafi Peretz read Psalms and recited the Kaddish prayer.
“We stand here in front of the coffins and the heart breaks - five coffins and one giant hole in the heart,” said Misezhnikov.
