The casket of Taylor Force, the American tourist who was murdered in Tuesday’s terrorist attack in Jaffa, was placed in Ben Gurion Airport on Friday morning.
There, a memorial service was held before the US Embassy’s Deputy Chief of Mission William Grant, former MK Dov Lipman, friends, and the crowd that came to pay their respects.
Taylor Force’s remains will be flown to New York and from there to his family in Texas.
A statement from Force’s family read: “Please pass on our profound appreciation to the people and government of Israel for being so compassionate and considerate during the worst time in our lives. Taylor was our entire world, and knowing that Israel mourns with us is comforting.”
