Israel has a very unique tradition on Yom HaZikaron (Memorial Day) and Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day). An air raid siren will go off and everyone will stop what they are doing for 2 minutes. People in their cars will stop wherever they are and get out to stand.
This video was taken at 10:58 am today (Yom HaZikaron) just before and during the siren which went off at 11 am. At about the 1:25 mark in the video the siren goes off. The sound isn’t very good so beware. The video covers the entire length of the siren. You can see the motorists standing alongside their cars, and then getting back in and moving once the siren is over.
The video is also in High Definition. Click on the HD button.
