Israelis hold minute of silence for October 7 massacre victims

Israelis hold a minute of standing silence to commemorate the victims of Hamas’s October 7 massacre across southern Israel, as memorial services get underway today. The moment of silence took place without a siren, unlike on Holocaust Remembrance Day and Memorial Day.

People sing the Israeli national anthem, Hatikva, following the silence.

Israelis are holding a national day of mourning to mark the one-month anniversary of the unprecedented October 7 Hamas attack when some 3,000 terrorists streamed into Israeli from Gaza via land, sea, and air, overrunning civilian communities and a military base, killing some 1,400 people, a majority of them civilians in their homes and at an outdoor music festival.

Hamas and other Palestinian terror factions also took some 240 hostages, including young children and elderly people.
