Opposition leader Tzipi Livni addressed the audience at a Remembrance Day ceremony in Afula, saying "I came here on this Remembrance Day, to the cemetery in Afula, to bow my head in front of you, the families of the fallen."

"I came to tell you what the rest of Israel's citizens and the Jewish people want to tell you, that Remembrance Day is a special day in which there are no divisions, in which the people of Israel are united around you and with you," Livni said.

The opposition leader told the audience, "We are obligated to preserve the security of the state, for which the fallen gave their lives. We are obligated to do everything in our power to remove the trauma of war and terrorism and to bring peace."
