Staff at Australia’s embassy in Israel made a show of support following this week’s fatal terror shooting in Tel Aviv, which left four dead.
A team of staffers made a point to dine at the market where the attack took place, the very day after the shooting.
The Australian group shared an image of their visit, along with this message:
Last night’s terrorist attack at Sarona Market was felt deeply by the Australian Embassy. It’s a place we have all spent many happy hours with family and friends, so seeing the tragedy unfold last night was profoundly shocking.
We came here to have lunch today to show the people of Israel that we feel your pain, mourn your loss, and stand alongside you as you confront such terror.
Israelis are tough and resilient people, and we see this here at Sarona today. The mood is sad, but people are determined to continue living their lives and not giving in to terror. We in Australia applaud and admire this resolve. And we are showing our support for this spirit by coming here today.
