Terror victim’s wife spars with state over characterization of husband’s death

Despite her state of mourning, widow Yael Weissman has been forced to take on another burden following the murder of her husband St. Sgt. Tuvia Yanai Weissman. Her 21-year-old husband was killed while trying to stop two teenage terrorists at a Rami Levy supermarket in Sha’ar Binyamin in the West Bank on February 18.

She wants her slain husband to be recognized as a soldier who died in action, while the Ministry of Defense wants her to sign off that he was killed in a terror attack. Whatever is agreed upon would be written on his gravestone’s epitaph.
