Greek Parliament lights up in solidarity with Israel

The flag of Israel was projected on the building of the Greek Parliament in central Athens on Wednesday night to show support for Israel and its people following Hamas’ unprecedented invasion from Gaza.

“The Greek Parliament tonight is illuminated with the same flag [as other  EU parliaments], to express both human support, but also sharp disapproval,” Parliament head Mr. Konstantinos Tassoulas said in a statement.

“Tonight, we not only light up [the building] with the colours of the flag of Israel, but through it, with [we support] the right to national sovereignty, to human dignity and finally to the hope for peace, which nevertheless has the right not to be irreparably lost,” he added.
