Israeli Ambassador to India, Naor Gilon, was “moved by Indian fans’ for showing their “solidarity with Israel” during India’s high-intensity World Cup clash against Pakistan on Saturday.
He was also pleased with India’s victory against their arch-rivals and the fact that Pakistan could not attribute its success to Hamas.
Gilon took to X (formerly Twitter) and said, “We are happy that #India emerged victorious in the #INDvsPAK match at #CWC23 and that Pakistan was unable to attribute its victory to the terrorists of Hamas.” He continued, “We were really moved by Indian friends showing their solidarity with Israel by displaying posters during the match.” He also shared two pictures of a man who held a poster which read “India Stands With Israel In War Against Terrorism”.
A few days earlier, Gilon commended India’s support and PM Narendra Modi, metaphorically suggesting that so many Indians offered to aid Israel that they could almost form a new unit for the Israel Defence Force. He also praised PM Modi for being one of the first global leaders to strongly condemn the terror attack.
