Benny Gantz Joins Prize Selection


Former IDF Chief of Staff, Benny Gantz, who oversaw operations during the abduction of Eyal, Gilad and Naftali, comes full circle, joining the steering committee of this years “Jerusalem Unity Prize!”

During the 18 days, when the fate of the three boys were unknown, Gantz led a wide manhunt, utilizing vast IDF resources, to find the boys and bring the culprits to justice.

Following the operation, Gantz made the following comment to the families of Eyal, Gil-ad and Naftali, “On the eve of Rosh HaShana (the Jewish new year) Operation Brother’s Keeper, which began on June 13th, has ended. We promised the Shaer, Frenkel and Yifrah families we would get the murders of their sons, and this morning we did it.”
