The remains of the five Israelis killed in a terror attack on a tourist bus in Bulgaria have all been identified. They have been flown home to Israel in an IAF Hercules aircraft.

The dead are Yitzchak Kolangi, 28, of Petach Tikva; Amir Menashe, 28, of Petach Tikva; Maor Harush, 25, of Akko; Elior Preis, 26, of Akko; and Kochava Shriki, 44, of Rishon LeTzion.

Before the airplane took off, a short ceremony was held at the Burgas airport. ZAKA volunteers said Kadish over the dead.

The caskets were received at Ben Gurion Airport in a military ceremony.

Another IAF plane took off Thursday afternoon from Bulgaria carrying three seriously wounded victims, accompanied by a medical staff under IDF Deputy Chief Medical Officer, Col. Dr. Dudu Dagan. The wounded were transported after medical evaluations determined their condition allowed them to be flown to Israel.

Earlier in the day, a plane carrying 33 victims who were less seriously wounded landed in Israel.
