The air and sea forces celebrate the 70th Independence Day of the State of Israel
As part of Israel’s 70th Independence Day celebrations, parachuting events were held in several places around the country. Among the 111 parachutists who parachuted into the country on Thursday were the participants in the Tiberias region and over the Sea of Galilee. The participants were the head of the technology and logistics division, Major General Aharon Haliva and the commander of the military colleges, Major General Amir Baram, who parachuted with their families. General Haliva fell with his daughter, who serves as a parachuting instructor. Maj. Gen. Amir Baram sank along with his father, brother and son – who preserve the family heritage that passes from generation to generation as the paratroopers’ family.
“To parachute on the 70th birthday of the state and the IDF is an extraordinary experience,” said Major General Baram, after the parachute jump with his family. “Today our family heritage has joined together with the pride and independence of the entire nation, and we are all proud to be part of the 70th anniversary celebrations of the country, as a paratrooper family and as an Israeli family.”
“This is the most beautiful way to celebrate the state,” said Haliva, who arrived at the rally and parachuted with his daughter in the IDF as a parachuting instructor. “It is not obvious to be in this status with my daughter, who symbolizes for me the next generation, In the 70s of the State of Israel. I wish her and all the people of Israel a happy holiday, and that we will always meet only in joy. “
