Fallen soldier's gravestone writing to be changed at widow's request
The Ministry of Defense will add the words "fell in battle" to the gravestone of Tuvia Yanai Weissmanm who was killed in a terrorist stabbing attack at a supermarket in the Binyamin industrial zone last month.

 

The decision was made after a consultation in the ministry, and after IDF CoS Eisenkot made his opinion clear, saying that Weissman's actions in confronting the knife-wielding terrorists bare-handed constituted a battle.
