Israeli Ambassador to India, Naor Gilon, has expressed his appreciation for the support received from India and Prime Minister Narendra Modi amidst the ongoing conflict with Hamas. Gilon metaphorically praised the sheer number of Indians volunteering to assist Israel, stating that they could almost form another unit of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF).
In recognition of Prime Minister Modi’s swift condemnation of the recent terrorist attack, Gilon commended him for being one of the first global leaders to denounce the act of violence. Gilon also highlighted the level of support and offers of assistance from various Indian officials and businessmen, emphasizing the deep and emotional nature of the relationship between India and Israel.
Additionally, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reached out to Prime Minister Modi to provide an update on the situation in Gaza. During their conversation, PM Modi expressed solidarity with Israel and condemned terrorism in all its forms and manifestations.
Unfortunately, the death toll in Israel has risen to 1,300 since the Hamas attack, with over 3,300 people injured. The situation remains dire, with approximately 150 individuals abducted and taken to the Gaza Strip. Their fate remains uncertain, causing immense distress to their families. Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari, spokesperson for the IDF, stated that the families of 97 hostages have been notified so far.
The international community continues to closely monitor the escalating crisis, with Israel appealing for support and assistance. The unwavering backing from India and Prime Minister Modi has been greatly appreciated by the Israeli government and its people, who are facing one of the most challenging periods in recent history. The relationship between India and Israel remains strong and mutually beneficial, providing hope for a better future amidst the ongoing conflict in the region.
