Prisons Service Dead to be Remembered on Memorial Day

Defense Minister Ehud Barak accepted, Sunday, the recommendation of the Public Council for Commemorating Soldiers to include members of the Israel Prisons Service (IPS) in the Yizkor memorial prayer to be recited on this month's Remembrance Day for the military and victims of terror. Members of the Prisons Service constituted most of the dead in the 2010 Carmel Ridge fire.

Barak said the inclusion is a statement values in conjunction with legislation intended to enable the burial of security services, the police, the Mossad intelligence agency and the IPS in military cemeteries.
