Members of the Knesset salute the family of Sgt. Max Steinberg, a lone soldier from the US killed fighting in Gaza in the 2014 war.

Knesset Speaker Mickey Levy hails Steinberg’s family as they sit in the gallery.

“In the name of the Knesset and the name of the people in Israel, I salute you and send you a warm hug,” Levy says while choking up.

Lawmakers in the plenum then rise and applaud Steinberg’s family.
