About the station's name

Named after Rafael (Raful) Eitan, 1929 - 2004

The 11th Chief of Staff of the Israel Defense Force, a member of the Knesset (parliament) and a Minister in various Israeli Governments. 

Rafael Eitan enlisted in the Palmach (paramilitary force) in 1944 and participated in the battles to relieve the siege laid to Jerusalem and to liberate Jerusalem in 1948. 

Eitan was appointed the 11th Chief of Staff of the IDF in 1978 and acted to increase discipline in the IDF. In tandem, he expanded the responsibility of the military to empower weak sectors of the population and established a command center to handle soldiers with low personality traits (“Raful’s Boys”).

Eitan met his demise on November 23, 2004, when he was swept out to sea from a quay during a storm at the Ashdod Port.
