“I did not come here to convince anyone about our rights in the land of Israel, I came here with mixed feelings of happiness from laying the cornerstone, alongside the great sadness of the difficult evacuation five years ago,” Edelstein said.

“We are here, first and foremost, thanks to the families of Migron that did not give up,” he added.
