Gantz Recalls Yom Kippur War


Chief of Staff Benny Gantz recalled the Yom Kippur War of 1973 as he addressed Memorial Day observances at the Western Wall of the Temple in Jerusalem, Sunday evening. He told bereaved families that through the sacrifice of their loved ones, the rest of the nation could carry on.

He noted that Israel's enemies have not stopped their efforts but Israel had a strong wall of defense and its military was as ready as ever to go wherever needed to defend the country.
