Graves of Israel’s Fallen Soldiers Adorned with Flags for Memorial Day 

0
A group of IDF soldiers moved from section to section of the Mount Herzl Military Cemetery in Yerushalayim this week, from the graves of the soldiers who fell in 1948 to the casualties from the 2014 Gaza war, placing a small Israeli flag marked with a black ribbon at every headstone, Lilach Shoval reports for the Jerusalem Post. This is being done in preparation for the Memorial Day for the Fallen Soldiers of Israel and Victims of Terrorism, which begins at sundown on Sunday.
By the time Memorial Day begins, every grave of a fallen soldier in Israel’s military cemeteries and in the military sections of civilian cemeteries will be marked with the special flag.
IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Gadi Eizenkot said, “We will hold our heads high and vow to carry on the mission for which the best of our sons and daughters died – ensuring our existence as a free people in their own.
