Israelis celebrate Independence Day

 

 Hundreds of thousands of Israelis visited Israel’s national parks, forests and beaches on Tuesday, celebrating Independence Day.

Israelis were hiking, bathing and having the traditional barbecue to celebrate Israel’s 62nd year of independence. Thousands also enjoyed the military’s aerial and naval demonstrations throughout the morning and afternoon.

In Jerusalem, President Shimon Peres honored this year’s outstanding soldiers, calling them a “wonderful portrait of the Israeli people.”

 

 Wikipedia description:

 

Yom Ha'atzmaut (Hebrew: יום העצמאות‎ yōm hā‘aṣmā’ūṯ; Arabic: عيد الإستقلال‎ 'īd al-istiqlāl) is the national independence day of Israel, commemorating its declaration of independence in 1948.

Celebrated annually on or around the 5th of the Jewish month of Iyar, it centers around the declaration of the state of Israel by David Ben Gurion in Tel Aviv on May 14, 1948 (5 Iyar, 5708), and the end of the British Mandate of Palestine.
