Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited the family of Ahmad Abu Latif, a Muslim Bedouin Arab soldier who died in an explosion in the Gaza Strip.

Abu Latif, a dedicated reserve fighter, left behind a grieving family, including a wife, an 11-month-old daughter, and 11 siblings.

He promoted coexistence and unity, and his family suggested memorializing him with an award for research on the shared existence of Jews and Arabs in Israel.

Netanyahu expressed condolences and emphasized unity in the face of tragedy. The attack also united Israelis against Hamas.

Netanyahu said, “There is a very interesting phenomenon that the public, I always say, has very refined senses. Even though they did not know Ahmad, but only saw a picture or heard some sentence, they absorb it immediately. Because of this, the entire people of Israel came here.”

“All citizens of Israel are coming here. I want to tell you that this truly reflects a very deep thing that happened here. This brotherhood and this partnership, that we know that we are fighting for the home of us all, and that people have fallen. Ahmad fell for the home of us all. He said this and expressed this even while he was alive,” he continued.

“I mourn this loss together with you, with his wife, with little Mansura, with the grandfather, the family and the siblings. I mourn together with you, I know what it is to lose a brother; I also saw my parents in their moments of sorrow. But the people here are very united, and this is a turning point,” he explained.

Israel’s Prime Minister said, “I think that your suggestion is very interesting. I think that it must be advanced. There is an example here, I am not just saying this – Ahmad was an example. I also see the spirit and the light that it gives, genuine light, a good soul.”

“I visited the Desert Reconnaissance Battalion. One of the Bedouin officers told me: ‘On the way to the area adjacent to the Gaza Strip, I saw a woman who had been beheaded. It is against this that we are fighting.’ That is what he said. ‘Against this we are fighting.’ Against this we are fighting – fighting together,” emphasized Netanyahu,

“This sense of ‘together’ needs to be expressed now with even greater intensity. There is a great contribution – unity – to heroes like Ahmad because it affects the entire public. It penetrates through to the heart, together,” he continued.

“The state is a diamond. It is a diamond that will also be in time of peace – but without the monsters,” he insisted.

“I would like to thank you all. I would like to thank you and the mother; she is in deep sorrow,” he concluded.
