More than a million and a half people are expected to go to Israel's military cemeteries on Monday as part of the Remembrance Day for soldiers, pre-state fighters and victims of terror. Following a two-minute siren at 11:00 a.m., official observances will take place with the participation of bereaved relatives, representatives of the Israel Defense Forces and government leaders.

The roads surrounding the Haifa military cemetery will be closed and no private vehicles will be allowed into the Neve David neighborhood. There will be transportation to the area from the Congress Center (Merkaz Hacongressim) and the Carmel Beach (Hof Hacarmel).

At the Kiryat Shaul cemetery, the ceremony will run between 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m., resulting in the occasional closing of the following streets: Sokolov Street in Ramat Hasharon in the direction of Moshe Sneh Street in Tel Aviv and the exits on Highway 5 to Hakfar Hayarok.
