Otzma Yehudit chief Itamar Ben Gvir claims Israeli Druze teenager Tiran Fero, was “still alive” when he was snatched by Palestinian gunmen from a Jenin hospital in November.

The Israeli government and military have refuted the Fero family’s claims that Tiran was still alive and hooked up to life support following a car crash, when removed from the Jenin hospital at gunpoint by Palestinian terrorists.

Fero’s body was returned several days later, after pressure from the Israeli government and the Druze community.

Fero’s father and uncle flanked Ben Gvir at the Otzma faction meeting, and several members of Fero’s family were in attendance.

A man identifying himself as Fero’s cousin confirms that the family supports this claim, speaking to The Times of Israel at the Otzma Yehudit faction meeting.
