Israel Mood

NPR's Jennifer Ludden in Jerusalem reports Israelis are marking the 53rd anniversary of the country's independence in a somber mood, amid ongoing conflict with the Palestinians. Israeli troops enforced strict security measures and tightened the closure of the occupied West Bank and Gaza to prevent Palestinian suicide attacks during the holiday.
