    The government approved a national day of mourning for the victims of the Mount Meron disaster, to take place Sunday, May 2.

    The approval was made by telephone, following a suggestion made by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Benny Gantz.
    On Sunday, flags in Israel, on IDF bases, and Israeli establishments abroad, such as at embassies, will be flown at half mast.

    Netanyahu said in a statement that “On Sunday we will hold a national day of mourning and lower the Israeli flags to half-mast in all public buildings, IDF bases and Israeli missions abroad. Let us all unite in grief with the families and pray for the recovery of the wounded.”

    Knesset Speaker Yariv Levin and his deputies decided to hold a memorial session of the Knesset in memory of the victims on Monday. On Sunday, the Knesset flag will also be flown at half mast and MKs will be invited to light candles in memory of the victims.
