  • Thousands attend funeral of police officer slain in Jerusalem terror attack

Politicians, religious leaders and thousands of well-wishers from across the country made their way to the village of Yanuh in the Galilee on Wednesday, to honour Zidan Saif, the Druse policeman who died of a gunshot wound sustained at the scene of the terrorist attack at a Jerusalem synagogue.

The funeral was attended by President Reuven Rivlin, Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch, National Police Commissioner Yochanan Danino, and leaders from Israel’s Druse community, the Jerusalem Post reports.

Aharonovitch said in his eulogy that “we are burying a hero of the Israel Police, who laid down his own body to protect the worshipers at the synagogue in Har Nof.”

President Reuven Rivlin said the fallen officer “was one of the noble sons of the state.”

“Without doubt or hesitation, he did what had to be done,” he added, praising his conduct as an officer and calling him “one of the first guardians of Jerusalem.”
