Defense Minister Ya'alon to bereaved families: You are heroes

Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon sent a letter to the bereaved families in honor of Memorial Day, and wrote: "It seems that there is no Israeli citizen who is unaffected or touched by such a loss, either personally or through friends who fell. It has hard to describe the depth of the pain."


Ya'alon further wrote that "the strength you exhibit, and your ability to return to your daily routine, despite your loss and the massive void it left behind, are for me the height of bravery, an example for us all." (Ynetnews)
