The Chilean miners have been invited to spend an “uplifting and extraordinary” Christmas in Israel.
The tourism minister, Stas Misezhnikov, has offered “Los 33” the chance to spend the holiday season in Israel as official guests.
The men, rescued last week from underneath the Atacama Desert, have been invited to see the Christian holy sites along with their partners. The trip would include free flights, accommodation and guided tours.
