President Isaac Herzog addressed onlookers at a ceremony commemorating Israel's fallen soldiers and victims of hostilities.

"In recent months - even this week, hatred and murder have [shown up on our doorstep]. As before, terrorism did not and will not defeat us," he said.

"The State of Israel is stronger than ever in spirit and might, and responds to every attack and threat with an iron fist and a strong spirit," continued Herzog.
