Knesset passes law recognizing bereaved siblings of fallen soldiers, terror victims

The Knesset passes into law legislation that offers formal state recognition for bereaved siblings of Israelis killed in battle or in terror attacks.

This will offer bereaved siblings the same rights as bereaved spouses, parents and children of soldiers and terror victims. As part of this, officials will now be legally obligated to notify siblings of their loved one’s death.

Siblings will also be eligible for benefits and will be invited to memorial events.
