JERUSALEM (JTA) — The four victims of the attack on a kosher supermarket in a Paris suburb likely will be buried on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem.

The families of the victims are seriously considering burying them in the historic cemetery in Jerusalem, Israeli media reported Sunday.

Robert Ejnes, director of CRIF, the umbrella organization of French Jewish communities, told Ynet that the burials will take place in Israel on Tuesday. Ejnes is coordinating the transfer of the bodies to Israel.

The victims are identified as Yoav Hattab, 22; Yohan Cohen, 22; Philippe Braham, 45; and François-Michel Saada, 55.
