The family of Eitan, who survived the cable car disaster: “He was not abducted”

The family of five-year-old Eitan Biran’s mother announced tonight (Sunday) that he has returned to Israel, “as his parents wanted.” They added that upon his arrival, Eitan was in intensive care by a senior medical staff at Sheba Hospital “in view of his complex condition and felt unspeakable.”

They denied that Eitan was abducted from Italy, as his father’s family living in the boot country claims. “Eitan’s bringing to Israel was done in a way that fulfilled his parents’ will, he was not abducted and nothing similar was done. He is in the arms of the family, wrapped in love and warmth as he deserves.”

Last night, Eitan’s aunt, Aya, his father’s sister, claimed he left his home in the northern city of Fabia at 11:30 a.m. along with his grandfather, Shmuel Peleg, who was scheduled to return him at 6:30 p.m.

When he did not return, and after the aunt tried to reach the grandfather without success, Peleg sent a message stating that “Eitan has returned home.” Later, Aya received another message from the Peleg family’s lawyer, according to which Eitan did land in Israel. Eitan’s smuggling into Israel was made possible because the Peleg family continued to hold Eitan’s Israeli passport, contrary to the judge’s order in Italy. His aunt filed a complaint with the police.

Both sides of the family of five-year-old Eitan, whose parents and brother were killed in the cable car disaster in Italy, are struggling to get custody of him in the three months since the incident. Until now, Eitan has stayed with Aya, his father’s sister, who lives in Italy. About a month ago, his maternal aunt, Gali Peleg, came out with a scathing attack on Aya and announced that she had started an adoption process.
