Today, Monday morning, the Israeli Ministry of Health opened for the first time the grave of a child whose parents immigrated from Yemen nearly 70 years ago, and social welfare services transferred him to the hospital shortly before informing his family of his death and his burial place.
On Sunday, the Israeli Family Court ruled that despite the Health Ministry’s opinion that the soil was wet and muddy and that it might harm the DNA sampling process, the opening of the tomb would go ahead as planned.
The Ministry of Health began taking a DNA sample, a procedure that may take hours, after which the material will be submitted for examination to the Forensic Medicine Institute, according to the Hebrew newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth.
There is talk about the first operation to open the grave of a Yemeni child, within the issue that preoccupied Israeli public opinion for decades before it erupted recently.
According to the authorities, the child Uziel Khoury died at the age of one year and two months in 1953 and was buried in the cemetery located in the city of Petah Tikva in central Israel, but his family suspects that he was not buried there, but rather disappeared in the context of the case.
For many years, controversy erupted over the file of the disappearance of 650 Yemeni children, who came with their Jewish families as immigrants from Yemen during the first years of the establishment of Israel, and the official authorities claimed that they died as a result of diseases, while their relatives say that they were kidnapped, including from hospitals, and sold to families of Western Jews. (Ashkenazi).
The aim of opening the grave of a child who died about 69 years ago, is to verify whether the same child who was born in 1952 and according to the authorities died one year and two months later – is the child buried there.
Khoury’s family immigrated to Israel in 1948. Uziel and his brother were born four years later, and when he was about a year old, the Yemeni child fell ill, and was transferred by the Social Welfare Services to the hospital, and soon after the family received the news of his death.
The State Commission of Inquiry into the “disappearance of Yemen’s children” decided that Uziel died and was buried in a cemetery in the city of Petah Tikva.
In 2016, former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, “The issue of Yemeni children is an open wound that continues to bleed in many families who do not know what happened to the children, and the children who have disappeared are searching for the truth.”

“Google” allows its employees to move “without reasons” to US states that allow abortion

The US company, “Google”, announced that it would allow its employees to move to other states that allow the right to abortion, after the Supreme Court’s decision to abolish the constitutional right to practice that act.
The company’s chief personnel officer, Fiona Ciccone, said in an internal letter to employees that “workers can apply for resettlement without justification or reasons,” and that those receiving applications will be “aware of the situation,” according to The Verge.
Ciccone also reminded workers that Google’s employee benefits plan covers medical procedures not available in the state in which they live and work.
In her email, the official considered that the Supreme Court’s decision “is a profound change for the country that deeply affects many of us, especially women,” noting that “everyone will respond to the decision in their own way, whether it is someone who wants space and time to adapt, speak up, or volunteer outside work, not wanting to discuss it at all, or something else entirely.”
According to an analysis published by The New York Times last month, the coming days and weeks may see 28 states ban or severely restrict access to abortions, most notably Texas.

Historic discovery… the mummified remains of the extinct giant in Canada

Paleontologists announced a rare discovery in the gold fields of Klondike, the far north of Canada, by finding the mummified remains of an almost complete woolly mammoth burial.

Paleontologist Grant Zazola said in a statement that the animal was “a remarkable and one of the most surprising Ice Age mummified animals ever discovered in the world.”

Zazula is excited to learn more soon about this mammoth cub, which is likely a female named “non cho ga”, meaning “small giant animal” in the Aboriginal language, with intact skin and hair.
The remains were found by digging up permafrost south of Dawson in Yukon Territory, on the border with the US state of Alaska.

It is likely that this animal died more than 30,000 years ago, when woolly mammoths, wild horses, cave lions and giant bison roamed the region.
This is the first semi-complete mummified mammoth found in such a good state of preservation in North America.

A part of the remains of a small mammoth named “Effie” was found in 1948 in a gold mine in Alaska, in addition to another mummified 42,000-year-old in Siberia in 2007, of an animal named “Lyuba” that was the same size as the mammoth whose remains were recently discovered.

The Yukon government said the territory is known worldwide for its Ice Age animal fossils, but “mummified remains with skin and dander” have rarely been discovered.
