Israel honors fallen soldiers, terror victims across the nation

Israelis came to a somber pause on Tuesday evening, as a one-minute siren sounds in honor of the country’s 23,741 fallen soldiers and 3,146 victims of terror, marking the beginning of the annual 24-hour period of mourning during which official and civilian ceremonies will take place nationwide.
Last year during the Memorial Day for the Fallen Soldiers of Israel and Victims of Terrorism, some 1.5 million Israelis went to pay their respects at gravesides of those killed in wars or terror attacks throughout the country’s history.
