Memorial for Rabin held at President’s Residence, 26 years after murder

A memorial for former prime minister Yitzhak Rabin, who was assassinated by a Jewish extremist in 1995, is held at the President’s Residence.

Speaking at the ceremony, Rabin’s grandson, Jonatan Benartzi, addresses the change of government earlier this year that removed Benjamin Netanyahu from power.

“After dark years of fear and [political] paralysis, Israel has won. In the face of a culture of tyranny, the people won. This morning, 26 years after the terrible night, I can say that the mourning period is over,” he says.
