The families petitioned the High Court back in 2004, before Israel’s last deal with Hizbullah. The appeal was postponed but the government promised to continue making an effort to track down information regarding their fate. Since then, the families say they have been left in the dark.
As part of approving the current deal with Hizbullah, the government agreed to convey information via the UN, concerning the fate of the Iranian diplomats who disappeared in Beirut during the Lebanon War.
Dalia Ravizada, whose father Nuriel disappeared together with 11 other Jews throughout the years 1994-1997 told Ynet Sunday: “No one is responding to our demands and we have no one to turn to anymore – only the High Court can help us.”
