Israel Stops to Honor Fallen Soldiers and Terror Victims 


Israel paused to honor its fallen soldiers and victims of terrorism Sunday evening as it began commemorating Memorial Day. Sirens wailed across the country at 8 p.m. and at 11 a.m. today, prompting Israelis to stop in their tracks and stand silently to remember the dead.

 Bereaved families visited cemeteries, places of entertainment shut, and TV and radio stations aired war stories and melancholy music.
The sad atmosphere ends sharply at sundown today, when Israelis take to the streets for Independence Day celebrations through Tuesday.
