The Times of Israel is liveblogging Monday’s events as they unfold.

IDF chief Aviv Kohavi, during a visit to the Nazi death camp Auschwitz, responds to Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi’s remarks doubting the Holocaust.

“You don’t have to be a historian or a researcher to understand the horrors of the Holocaust — you have to be a human being,” Kohavi says.

“Anyone who lies and denies the painful and solid truth of history, easily lies today, and will naturally lie in the future,” he says, referring to Raisi. “This is another reminder that such people should not be allowed to possess any capacity of any kind for development of weapons of mass destruction,” he adds, referring to Iran’s nuclear program.

Switzerland’s federal criminal court convicts a Swiss-Italian woman of attempted murder and ties to the banned radical group Islamic State over the stabbing of two women in a department store.

She is handed a nine-year prison sentence.

The attacker, who is in her late 20s but was not identified by name, is also convicted by the court in the town of Bellinzona of “repeated illegal practice of prostitution,” the court says. Regulated prostitution is allowed in Switzerland.

The verdict follows a four-day trial in late August and early September over the Nov. 24, 2020, attack in the Manor chain department store in the southern Swiss city of Lugano.

The attack was a rare instance of violence linked to radical Islamic extremism in Switzerland, which was largely spared the wave of such violence that has hit other countries in Europe and around the world over the past two decades.

A two-minute silence is observed across the United Kingdom in memory of Queen Elizabeth II as the late monarch’s state funeral service drew to a close in Westminster Abbey.

Britain’s royal family, along with hundreds of world leaders and dignitaries gathered at the Gothic abbey in London for the service Monday, lowers their heads as Household Cavalry trumpeters play “The Last Post.”

The congregation then observes a two-minute silence before singing the national anthem.

A lament, played by the Queen’s Piper, brings the service to a close.

After the service, the queen’s coffin was to be laid to rest at Windsor Castle .

Lebanese President Michel Aoun says that indirect talks with Israel to end a maritime border dispute are in their “final stages.”

In a tweet, Aoun says that the talks are wrapping up “in a way that guarantees Lebanon’s rights to explore for gas and oil.”

Israel and Lebanon have been holding US-brokered talks for more than a year over a dispute that centers on maritime rights to an area where Israel is exploring via the Karish gas field.
