IDF chief Aviv Kochavi said Sunday that the decision to shutter the country's cemeteries during Memorial Day in order to combat the spread of coronavirus was a "hard, but justified decision."
"The decision to do so was a hard one to make," said Kochavi. "My hearts are with the families of the fallen, but it is justified and must be respected."
"Distance does not prevent us from coming together with their memory and our sorrow."
