In advance of Remembrance Day, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Saturday visited the grave of his brother Yonathan, who was killed during the Entebbe raid in Uganda on July 4, 1976.

"On Remembrance Day the entire nation is reunited in a moment of grief and gratitude to those who sacrificed their lives to uphold the State of Israel," Netanyahu said after he and his family visited the Mt. Herzl Military Cemetery in Jerusalem.

His brother, a Lt. Col. in the IDF, was a sole fatality in the successful mission to rescue hostages in Entebbe after their plane was hijacked.
