An annual memorial event commemorating slain prime minister Yitzhak Rabin has been canceled following a disagreement between two youth groups on the theme of the ceremony, Army Radio reported on Thursday. 

The Fourth of November movement, that has been organizing the memorial rally in Tel Aviv's Rabin Square for the past 16 years, decided to cancel their November 3 event.

The November 3 event was meant to focus on traditional messages of peace and non-violence, while an October 27 event by youth group Dror Israel will reportedly address "price tag" incidents and racist comments made by rabbis.

The yearly ceremony is held in memory of former prime minister Rabin, who was shot by Yigal Amir after taking part in a peace rally on November 4, 1995.
