President Shimon Peres remembered Israel's fallen soldiers at the official state ceremony marking Remembrance Day for the Fallen of Israel’s Wars and Victims of Terrorism at the Western Wall in Jerusalem.

Peres said that Israel had been founded, not with the UN's declaration of Israel as a state, but through the "blood of its sons, the sweat of its pioneers and the vision of its prophets."

The president said that Israel's happiness was always tinged with sadness because of the soldiers that have fallen protecting the state.

Peres sent his condolences to the bereaved families, saying that "without the courage of your children, husbands, brothers and sisters we would not have a state."
