President Shimon Peres will host the official Independence Day celebrations at the President's Residence on Tuesday, with songs and aerial demonstrations.

The president will honor 120 exceptional soldiers and officers with an award, after IAF planes conduct a honorary flyover.

The president will then host the "Singing Independence" concert attended by Israel's top political and army officials, who will perform duets with leading Israeli singers.
