Calling India a ‘true friend’, an Israeli woman, who survived the October 7 attack by Hamas, has thanked Indian PM Narendra Modi for extending continuous support towards her nation.

She remarked at a time when the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas crossed six months.

During the attack on October 7, Hamas members killed 1,200 people in southern Israel.

The attack triggered the ongoing war between Hamas and Israel.

“I see the Indian support that started much before, years before October 7 and also after October 7. Thanks to Prime Minister Modi… We know that India is a true friend of Israel,” the woman, identified as Moran, told Indian news agency ANI.

She also described Indian people as ‘good friends’.

“I think it is not just the Indian government. Thanks to the Indian people who have always been and continue to be our good friends,” she said.

“Our voice cannot be everywhere. We know that the Indian people are taking care of everything we need,” she said.

Meanwhile, the President of the UN General Assembly appealed on Monday (April 8, 2024) for “all those with leverage” to use their power to bring an end to the six-month-long war in Gaza.

Dennis Francis convened the UN’s most representative body, comprising all 193 Member States, following the Security Council’s failure to adopt a resolution put forward by the United States last month.  

The debate was triggered by a 2022 Assembly resolution that calls for a meeting to be held within 10 working days whenever a veto is cast in the Council.
