Rivlin offers condolences to families of 3 foreign workers killed by Gaza rockets

President Reuven Rivlin spoke earlier this week with the family of three foreign nationals killed in Israel by rockets fired from Gaza, a statement says.

According to the statement, Rivlin spoke on the phone with the husband of Soumya Santosh, an Indian citizen working as a caregiver in Israel, who was killed in rocket fire on Ashkelon.

“I hope you find comfort in the love, the generosity and the kindheartedness she gave to others in need,” Rivlin told the widower.

Santosh thanked the president for his warm embrace and Israel for helping to expedite the transfer of the body to India for burial.

Speaking to the widows of Weerawat Karunborirak and Sikarin Sa-ngamrum, killed when a projectile hit a packing house near the Gaza border, the president expressed his condolences to them and their children and also sent condolences to Thailand’s King Maha Vajiralongkorn, the government and the people of Thailand.

“We weep with you at this tragic loss of life to terrorism. I hope you will find solace in their love and hope for better days,” said the president at the end of the call, according to the statement.
