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.
