Remembrance Day: 43 fallen IDF soldiers in the past year
A total of 43 deaths were added to Israel’s list of fallen soldiers between the previous Remembrance Day until now, the Defense Ministry announced on Friday morning, with another 69 disabled persons dying as a result of injury in defense services.
As is every year, a siren will go off on the eve of Remembrance Day this coming Tuesday at 8 p.m., and another one on Remembrance Day itself at 11 a.m., during which the country stands still for a moment of silence and remembrance for the fallen soldiers of the IDF.
This year, on Memorial Day for Fallen Soldiers, we will remember the 23,928 soldiers who died during the different wars of Israel since 1860, and the 4176 civilians who were killed by terror attacks. May their memory stay with us for ever!
