Those against terrorism are with us, says Israeli ambassador to India

New Delhi, (UNI) Appreciating India’s support against military operations against Hamas in Gaza, Israeli ambassador Naor Gilon on Wednesday said that all the countries against terrorism are with Israel.

“Those who are against terrorism and see Israel as fighting terrorism are with us. Those who felt uncomfortable (are) not with us because they were not with us also to start with,” Gilon said here today during a press conference.

The Israeli ambassador said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was among the first world leaders to condemn Hamas’s attack on Israel early this month.

Gilon termed India as a very important moral voice in the world and said that most key countries are with Israel in the fight against Hamas.

Emphasizing the need to destroy and dismantle Hamas, the ambassador said that if it seemed that Hamas is winning against Israel there would be the risk of unrest caused by other terrorist oganisations.

“Which is why Hamas needs to be stopped,” he said.

Gilon noted that Israel was determined to finish Hamas as it was important for its survival in the Middle East.

Following the Hamas attack on Israel on October 7, Israel has launched full-scale war against the militant organisation and has been conducting targeted air strikes in Gaza. It is also preparing for ground operations and could enter the Hamas-controlled territory anytime soon.
