Noam Raz, a veteran police commando killed yesterday in an Israeli operation near Jenin, will be posthumously promoted to the rank of command sergeant major, the force announces.

“Raz belonged to a small and special group of officers and warriors who put the good of the state and security of its citizens first. He dedicated his life to his friends in the unit and for the police and the country,” Israel Police Commissioner Yaakov Shabtai says.

Raz is due to be buried tomorrow in the police section of Mount Herzl national cemetery in Jerusalem.
