General Staff Forum members gathered Monday morning at the Rabin Center to mark 15 years since the assassination of former Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin.
The ceremony was held in the presence of head of the Rabin Center and daughter of the late prime minister, Dalia Rabin, his sister, Rachel Yaakov Rabin, and Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi.
During the ceremony, Ashkenazi said the IDF is making strong efforts to tell the story of Rabin's assassination because today's soldiers were only five-years-old when it happened and it is a duty to remember and remind people about it.
"Yitzhak Rabin is not with us today, but his spirit and legacy continue to guide us, and with that his hope that there will be an equal, united, and inventive society here. We're back here today knowing that this torch of hope...is in secure and good hands, and [we're here] in the belief that it will remain in such hands in the future," said Ashkenazi.
