Ya’alon lights virtual candle for Israel’s fallen soldier

Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon used a new Defense Ministry application on Facebook to light the first virtual candle in memory of Israel’s fallen soldiers on Thursday.
After activating the candle, Ya’alon wrote, “On this day, we’ll remember those who fell for the people and the land, so that we are worthy of their sacrifice.”
The Defense Ministry said it created the application to strengthen the public’s solidarity with Remembrance Day, which falls on Monday.
Bereaved families were invited by the ministry to light a virtual candle for their loved ones, and members of the public can also light a candle in memory of fallen soldiers.
