WATCH LIVE: Tens of thousands mark 20th anniversary of Rabin assassination in Tel Aviv

Thousands of Israelis attended a mass rally on Saturday night commemorating the 20th anniversary of the assassination of late prime minister Yitzhak Rabin in Tel Aviv.

Rabin was gunned down following an appearance at a Tel Aviv peace rally by Yigal Amir, who was opposed to the then government’s negotiations with the Palestinians.

Rabin’s murder stunned not just Israelis but the international community that had pinned its hopes on the former general to achieve peace between Israel and the Palestinians.
