‘Yom Kippur War shows it’s almost impossible to predict conflict,’ Rivlin says

A repeat of the 1973 Yom Kippur War cannot be ruled out since it is "impossible" to predict when renewed conflict will arise, President Reuven Rivlin said on Thursday.

Speaking at a special state ceremony honoring the fallen of the war, the president said that it was incumbent upon Israelis to continue to criticize their leadership in order to ensure that a similar trauma is avoided in the future.

"Forty-two years have passed," the president said. "During this time, we have carried the memory of that war, a war which shaped an entire generation and changed the face of this country."
