After a state ceremony to honor the 44 victims of the Carmel wildfire, the Prime Minister's Office issued a statement saying it was important for Netanyahu to address the bereaved families, and that his awareness of their pain and loss is why he wanted to hold the official government ceremony.

"I know the pain and am aware of the huge loss and the emptiness that is left for the bereaved families," said Netanyahu, who lost his brother Yonatan in the Entebbe raid in 1976.

The statement said Netanyahu will "continue to work with determination to beef up the home front and  emergency services in Israel."
