Happy independence day to Israel

Happy independence day to Israel - 64 years!!!

Yom Ha'atzmaut is the national independence day of Israel, commemorating its declaration of independence in 1948. It is a non-religious holiday, celebrated annually on or around the 5th of the Jewish month of Iyar.

Scheduling Yom Hazikaron right before Yom Ha-Atzma'ut is intended to remind people of the price paid for independence and of what was achieved with the soldiers' sacrifice. This transition shows the importance of this day among Israelis, most of whom have served in the armed forces or have a connection with people who were killed during their military service.

Little History;
Yom Ha'atzmaut centers around the declaration of the state of Israel by The Jewish Leadership led by future Prime Minister, David Ben-Gurion, on 14 May 1948. This was declared 8 hours before the end of the British Mandate of Palestine, which was due to finish on the 15th May 1948.
The Israeli declaration was based on United Nations General Assembly Resolution 181 regarding the Partition Plan for Palestine, adopted on 29 November 1947. The new state was quickly recognized by the Soviet Union, the United States, and many other countries, but not by the surrounding Arab states, who declared war.
