Yom Hazikaron (Remembrance Day) at Rabin Square in Tel Aviv

Last night at 8:00 Israel came to a complete standstill when sirens wailed for one minute throughout the country for Yom Hazikaron (Remembrance Day), in commemoration of the 25,664 fallen soldiers and terror victims who’ve been killed throughout the history of Israel and the Zionist movement. 
Here was the scene near Rabin Square in Tel Aviv during that moment of silent reflection.
