Rivlin pays condolence visit to family of Old City stabbing victim

President Reuven Rivlin pays a condolence visit to the family of Adiel Kolman, who was stabbed to death Sunday in a terror attack in Jerusalem’s Old City.

“When I heard you say you choose life, when I heard about the strength you found the morning of [his] passing to tell the Israeli nation about who your special son was, how great his soul was [and] how much room it had for everyone — my heart broke,” Rivlin says he told Kolman’s mother Yael.

Kolman was buried Monday in the central West Bank settlement of Kochav Hashachar, where he lived.

The terrorist, 28-year-old Abd al-Rahman Bani Fadel from Aqraba, near the West Bank city of Nablus, was shot dead by police at the scene.
