President Shimon Peres on Tuesday spoke at the a Yom Hazikaron ceremony at the Western Wall, just minutes after a siren sounded beckoning a minute-long silence in memory of the fallen soldiers of the IDF.

Peres said that all of Israel's amazing advances have been made because of the sacrifices of the dead.

"Your sons and daughters will not return to you... Their bravery has left us alive, but their deaths have left us broken," he said in his opening speech.
