As the nation readies to honor those who have died in combat and terror attacks, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu urged the country to maintain the unity it feels during Remembrance Day every day of the year.
"The unity that we feel during this day is natural and clear," Netanyahu said at a Remembrance Day ceremony at Ammunition Hill in Jerusalem. "But I must say especially on this day of unity, that this [kind of unity must continue] every day of the year.
"It is this unity which helps us through times of despair and difficulties, and it is this which will also help us tomorrow to face great challenges," he continued. "Our existence as a people and a nation depends on this unity."
