Millions of Israelis throughout the country came to a standstill for a 2-minute siren in memory of 25,578 soldiers  and victims of terror who have fallen since 1860.

At 11am on Monday, Israel's Remembrance Day, Israelis stopped driving their cars, put their shopping bags down, stopped whatever they were doing and stood silently to the sound of the siren, in honor of those who sacrificed their lives in Israel's defense.
