Benjamin Netanyahu Ignores India While Thanking 25 Nations For Supporting Israel

Netanyahu in his tweet mentioned 25 countries including America, then Albania, Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Cyprus, Georgia, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Slovenia and Ukraine.

There have been various tweets on social media supporting both Palestine and Israel. However, there has been no official statement from the Indian government that has clearly supported key-ally Israel over ‘terror attacks’ on major Israeli cities and criticized Hamas.

India’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, TS Tirumurthy, during a Security Council meeting on 11 May, said that both sides should avoid changing the status quo on the ground.

Earlier, 128 countries including India voted in the UN General Assembly rejecting the US declaration to make Jerusalem the capital of Israel.

India, despite being a staunch ally of Israel, has avoided embracing Israel openly due to its good relationship with Arab nations.

However, for the first time in 2017, Narendra Modi visited Israel, becoming the first Indian Prime Minister in 70 years to do so and embracing Israel openly. Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu called Modi’s visit spectacular.

Meanwhile, Netanyahu in another tweet said “Over the past week, many Israeli citizens have been forced to take shelter in camps. Many Israelis have been killed. Many people have been injured.

“You know and I know: No country would tolerate this,” Netanyahu said. “Israel has responded forcefully to these attacks, and we will continue to respond forcefully until the security of our people is reinstated and restored.”
