President Reuven Rivlin, today (Sunday), commented on the passing of former minister Binyamin ("Fouad") Ben-Eliezer:
"Fouad was a man of many merits, who gave the best years of his life to defending and building up the state. An IDF Brigadier-General, he served as commander of Judea and Samaria and Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories. In his many years as an MK and a minister he worked for the people and the state with dedication and all his heart. On his passing, we will recall his love of this country, his dedication to its security and everything he gave to it, and contributed to its development."
