Empty strollers with white and red balloons tied to them were set in the heart of Milan, in front of the Duomo. Each of them displayed photos and stories of the children kidnapped by Hamas and held hostage for twenty-six days in Gaza by Palestinian terrorists. In the background, large Israeli flags. The initiative, carried out by a group of citizens, is one of many organized in Italy to raise public awareness about the fate of two hundred Hamas hostages, among which about thirty are minors. “It was a very moving initiative,” commented the Israeli ambassador to Rome Alon Bar.
