Wales' national remembrance service has taken place at the Welsh National War Memorial in Cardiff to commemorate those who lost their lives in conflict.
First Minister Mark Drakeford said it was as "relevant and poignant as ever as the escalation of violence in Israel and Gaza, the continuing war in Ukraine, and other conflicts continue".
Events have also been held in Anglesey, Ceredigion, Flintshire and Swansea.
King Charles is leading a National Service of Remembrance in London.
In Cardiff, detachments from the Royal Navy, the Army, the Royal Air Force and Merchant Navy marched by City Hall to the national war memorial in Alexandra Gardens, Cathays Park.
At 10:59 GMT, a bugler from The Royal Welsh Regimental Band and Corps of Drums of The Royal Welsh sounded the Last Post followed at 11:00 by a gun of the 104 Regiment Royal Artillery, Newport, signalling the start of a two-minute silence.
Mr Drakeford said: "We have members of the Jewish community and Muslim community here in Wales who have friends and family in the Middle East, for whom events there are absolutely real in their lives, and today is a day that draws that to the surface and allows us all to reflect on how can we as an international community find a way to bring an end to that fighting."
Other annual parades and services of remembrance are taking place in Wrexham and Swansea city centres, Beaumaris on Anglesey, Flint cenotaph in Flintshire, Cardigan cenotaph in Ceredigion and at Cwmbran Park in Torfaen, among others.

Mali Stevenson, 17, a cadet with St John Ambulance, said it's "important that people come together".
