The bodies of the four Jewish victims of last week’s terror attacks in France arrived in Israel on Tuesday, three days after they were killed in a standoff involving militant gunmen at a kosher supermarket in Paris.
The funeral for the four men — Yohan Cohen, Yoav Hattab, Francois-Michel Saada and Phillipe Braham — will be attended by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and several other prominent individuals, the Associated Press reports.
A total of 17 people died over three days last week, when gunmen claiming allegiance to Jihadist group Al-Qaeda opened fire at the Paris headquarters of satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo. Twelve people died in the initial attack, while the remaining victims — including the four laid to rest in Israel — were killed during the ensuing operation to apprehend the perpetrators.
