Eitan Biran’s parents, brother and two great-grandparents were killed in the crash, sparking an intense and complicated custody battle for his surviving parents in Italy and Israel.
The Birans lived in Pavia, in northern Italy, and an Italian judge ruled that Biran’s paternal aunt in Italy should receive guardianship.

But in September, his maternal grandfather visited Biran in Italy, drove him across the border into Switzerland, and then took him to Israel by private jet.

A few days later, Biran’s aunt filed a complaint about the kidnapping of her nephew with the Israeli authorities.

The Tel Aviv Family Court has now ruled that Biran should be returned to his aunt, rejecting the grandfather’s argument that his actions were legal and in the best interests of his grandson.

The court rejected the claim that Israel was the minor’s usual place of residence, noting that he moved to Italy when he was two months old. He also said it was in the boy’s best interests to stay in the country.

The court also ruled that the grandfather’s actions were illegal and violated his aunt’s custody rights.

Eitan Biran’s family died when a cable broke during a ride on the Stresa-Mottarone cable car from Lido di Stresa square on Lake Maggiore to nearby Mottarone mountain in the Piedmont region

Authorities believe 15 passengers were riding the cable car at the time of the incident. The only survivor, Biran suffered multiple injuries and had to be operated on.
