Sgt. Elchai Teharlev’s family express as much to Minister of Defense Avigdor Lieberman, who comes to visit the mourning family at their home in Talmon; they share stories of a young man whom they describe as being good-natured and calm and who was murdered whilst drinking a cup of coffee at a bus stop.The family of the soldier who was murdered in Thursday’s vehicular attack told the minister of defense on Friday that they expected their son’s killer never to be released from prison.
The family of 20-year-old Sgt. Elchai Teharlev spoke with Avigdor Lieberman in person when he came to visit them during the ritual, week-long period of Jewish mourning. They said that the terrorist, Malak Hamed, exited his car with his hands raised knowing that the soldiers present at the junction would not kill him, and muttered that he was sorry. “We expect him to rot in jail,” they told Lieberman.
