PM: Nobody Can Fathom Other's Bereavement


Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said, Monday, that every individual deals with bereavement in his or her own way. Speaking at an observance at Mount Herzl in Jerusalem to mark the Memorial Day for fallen soldiers, Netanyahu reflected on his recent meeting with children of fallen soldiers and how young they were to have to live without fallen parents.

Netanyahu noted accomplishments in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, and the fact that the Israel Defense Forces are stronger than ever, able to meet every challenge. He said Israel seeks peace but will defend itself, acknowledging that the country's independence was achieved through the efforts of those who fought for it and those who fell for it, calling for their memory to be a blessing.
