Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Monday spoke at a ceremony in memory of the 44 people who lost their lives in the Carmel Fire, telling the families of those who lost loved ones in the blaze that "partial relief can be found in the legacy of heroism that the victims left behind."

A memorial was inaugurated near Kibbutz Beit Oren in honor of the Carmel Fire victims.

"This memorial will serve as eternal evidence of their heroism," he stated.
