Israel celebrates 70 years of independence

Graphic News

April 18-20, 2018 -- Israel will celebrate 70 years of statehood, starting with an Independence Day ceremony on Wednesday which will end on Saturday evening after 70 hours of festivity.

Events will include the largest fireworks display in the country’s history, followed by an all-night beach party stretching 70km from Tiberias to Eilat. The $30 million-party will end Saturday night with a musical event that represents a soundtrack of Israeli society.

On May 14 -- the actual day of the anniversary -- the United States will relocate its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

The White House decision has sparked a furious reaction from Palestinians, who object to the U.S. recognition of the disputed city as Israel's capital and call May 14 the Naqba, their “day of catastrophe.”
