President Reuven Rivlin's comments on the publishing of the State Archives on the Yemenite children

(Communicated by the President's Spokesperson)

 

"I welcome the decision of the Government of Israel to open the State Archives, and publish documents pertaining to the disappearance of children of immigrants to Israel from Yemen.

 

"This is a burden that Israeli society bears, which needed to have been addressed many years ago, and I hope that it will allow families, and us as a society, to find out what happened to those children."
