The unbreakable bond between Remembrance Day and Independence day underscores the fact those who fell in Israel's wars, did not fall in vain, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in a message to bereaved families of fallen soldiers, on the eve of Remembrance Day Tuesday.

"My brothers and sisters, members of bereaved families, it was the heartfelt duty of our dear ones that led them to face the enemy. It is the duty of our conscience that leads us to stand with eyes closed and not only remember but look toward the future as well. Today, the People of Israel lay aside disagreements and stand as one beside you. Today we remember the fallen of Israel's wars, all of our dear ones.  Each one had a family. Every name has a life's story of its own; an entire world has been cut short, " Netanyhau said.

In reference to his late brother Yoni Netanyahu, who fell in the Entebbe rescue mission, the prime minister said: "As a member of a bereaved family, Remembrance Day is very significant for me. It is not only a national day of remembrance, it is also a private day of remembrance for me and my family, as it is for all of you."

"After Remembrance Day, the State of Israel will celebrate its 64th birthday... our dear ones who fell in Israel's wars did not fall in vain. Thanks to them, the State arose. Thanks to them, the State of Israel will continue to develop and prosper, and thanks to them the members of the younger generation will also be able to live their lives in security and tranquility," Netanyahu stated.
