News Brief


The mother of slain soldier Udi Goldwasser is running for the Nahariya City Council.

Miki Goldwasser said serving the city in which she was born and where she raised her children would be a way of giving back to the people who worked to bring back her son.

Udi Goldwasser’s remains were returned in July in a prisoner swap with Hezbollah. He had been abducted in July 2006 by members of Hezbollah on a raid into Israel.

Miki Goldwasser will run as part of the One Nahariya Party of Mayor Jackie Sabag.

“I consider it my duty to take part in public life for the benefit of the city and its residents,” she said in announcing her candidacy Tuesday.
