The Israeli flag was illuminated to the administrative headquarters of Bosnia’s Serb entity and Austria’s Prime Ministry as a sign of support to Israel’s attacks on Palestine.
Austrian Prime Minister Sebastian Kurz announced on Twitter that the flag of Israel was hoisted on the roof of the prime minister’s building to show that they are in solidarity with Israel.
Kurz strongly condemned Palestine and described the Palestinians as “terrorists” for taking action against Israeli attacks.
Known for his close ties to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Kurtz threw his support behind Israel, whose attacks caused the deaths of dozens of Palestinian children and civilians.
Meanwhile, Bosnia and Herzegovina’s Serb entity illuminated an Israeli flag to its administrative center as a sign of support.
The flag was illuminated to the presidential palace in the city of Banja Luka of Republik Srpska (RS), one of two entities of Bosnia.
“Supporting our Israeli friends in their efforts to bring peace in the country,” RS President Zeljka Cvijanovic said on social media.
Also, another Israeli flag was projected on the historical walls in the Serbian-majority city of Trebinje in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Slovenia hoisted Israeli flags on government buildings as a sign of solidarity.
“We condemn the terrorist attacks and we stand by Israel,” said Prime Minister Janez Jansa.
Israeli forces in recent days have attacked Palestinians protesting in solidarity with residents of the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of East Jerusalem, who were ordered to be evicted by an Israeli court.
The occupying forces also raided the Al-Aqsa Mosque during special night prayers in Ramadan.
The subsequent escalation of tensions resulted in airstrikes by Israel on Gaza, killing over 120 Palestinian citizens, including children and women, according to health officials. At least 920 others have been injured, besides heavy damage to residential buildings.
Israel occupied East Jerusalem, where Al-Aqsa is located, during the 1967 Arab-Israeli war. It annexed the entire city in 1980, in a move never recognized by the international community.
