Prime Minister and Interior Minister were both heckled Wednesday while speaking at Memorial Day events.

As Bennett spoke during a memorial service at Mount Herzl national cemetery commemorating the over 4,000 Israelis killed in terror attacks, members of the audience called the premier a “traitor,” “swindler” and a “rag.”

“Shut your mouth,” one person could be heard shouting.

Bennett stood silently at the podium for several minutes amid the shouting, before resuming his speech.

“The bereaved families are sacred. They can shout and they can grieve,” he said.
