Israeli cities expressed solidarity and support towards Italy. The walls of the Old City of Jerusalem, but also the municipality buildings of Tel Aviv and Petah Tikwa were lit up with the colors of the Italian flag.
“Italy, Jerusalem stands with you,” read the message on the Old City walls.
“Jerusalem – wrote the diplomat, sharing on Facebook the image of the ancient city walls illuminated with the tricolor – is the heart of Israel, and from this heart a great prayer gathers for the healing of the sick among the Italian people,” Israeli ambassador to Rome Dror Eydar said, expressing words of encouragement to has Italian leaders, doctors, security forces, and to all citizens.
“Not only the Torah comes out of Zion, but also prayer and healing,” he concluded.
