Prime Minister Naftali Bennett addresses the state ceremony marking the murder of former prime minister Yitzhak Rabin 26 years ago. The ceremony is taking place at the Mount Herzl military cemetery. Opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu is not attending.

“The lesson I took away from Rabin’s murder — under no circumstances, no matter the situation, should the nation be torn apart. We cannot set the house on fire. We are brothers. The only comfort from this terrible murder is the fact that we managed to flourish, to correct,” says Bennett.
