Thousands of Israelis gathered at the Tel Aviv square where Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated to mark the 21st anniversary of the former prime minister’s death and remember his call for peace. Rabin was gunned down on November 4, 1995 by a Jewish extremist who opposed his policy of trading land for peace with the Palestinians.
Rabin’s government negotiated the first interim peace accord with the Palestinians in 1993. He won a Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts.
Saturday’s rally at the square that bears Rabin’s name has become an annual pilgrimage for many Israelis to pay tribute to the slain leader.
This year’s rally was initially canceled for the first time for lack of funds. But a public uproar ultimately generated the backing for it to take place.
