Photo Gallery: Israelis observe Remembrance Day

Country stops for two minutes to honor soldiers, security personnel who have fallen in defense of Israel.

Israelis paid tribute to fallen soldiers and terror victims during Remembrance Day ceremonies in Jerusalem and across the country on Tuesday, followed by a two-minute siren at 11 a.m. Wednesday morning.
The entire country was to come to a halt during the siren.
Ceremonies were scheduled to continue on Wednesday in remembrance of the 22,993 soldiers who have fallen in defense of Israel since 1860 – the year the first Jews left Jerusalem’s Old City walls to settle other parts of the country.
