During the Remembrance Day ceremony on Mount Herzl, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promised he would reapprove the establishment of a Memorial Hall for Martyrs – for Israel's fallen and victims of terror – immediately after he formed a new government, Channel 12 News reported on Wednesday.

A shout from the crowd called Netanyahu out on his statement: "Leave the politics out of this! Where have you been for 40 years? You should be embarrassed!" Channel 12 wrote.
His son Yair Netanyahu was quick to respond to the incident on Twitter: "So the prime minister spoke about establishing a fallen IDF soldier memorial, and immediately he was interrupted by, 'Don't talk about politics, you should be embarrassed."
"Is there anyone who doesn't understand that it was all planned in advance and not even related to the content of his speech? That's an embarrassment! Debasing a mourning brother on Remembrance Day," he continued to tweet. 
Netanyahu's brother, Yoni Netanyahu, was killed in action during Operation Entebbe in 1976, a hostage rescue mission at Entebbe Airport in Uganda.
