Adelson’s remains set to arrive in Israel for funeral

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is set to pay his respects to Las Vegas mogul Sheldon Adelson, whose remains are arriving in Israel this evening ahead of his burial in Jerusalem tomorrow, according to Channel 12.

Netanyahu will welcome Adelson’s plane at Ben Gurion Airport, but won’t attend the funeral due to the lockdown restrictions, the network says.

Adelson was a strong supporter of Netanyahu, as well as US President Donald Trump.
