The United Kingdom government will fly the Israeli flag on all UK government buildings to show solidarity with Israel after the Hamas attacks.

“The Israeli flag shines on Downing Street tonight in solidarity with the people of Israel,” the UK Prime Minister X page posted.

“The UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has illuminated Downing Street with the Israeli flag in a show of solidarity with Israel,” the State of Israel’s official X page said.

Sky News reported on the developments:

City A.M. reports:

Number 10 Downing Street and London’s City Hall have been lit up in blue and white in solidarity with Israel following the recent surge in violence in the region sparked by Hamas’ terror attacks on Saturday.

Rishi Sunak said he had spoken to Israel’s prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and offered the country Britain’s support.

Meanwhile the mayor of London’s office confirmed to City A.M. it had been in discussions about “public acts of support” for Israel, following other major cities such as Berlin and New York, which have lit up landmarks with its flag.

Number 10 Downing Street has also been lit up with the Israeli flag from 8pm.

City Hall in East London donned the colors of the Israeli flag Sunday night.

The UK Parliament building will light up in Israel’s blue and white Monday night.

On Monday, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) implored Joe Biden to light up the White House in solidarity with Israel.

The Messenger reports:

In his Monday Fox News appearance, Graham called for the White House to fly the Israeli flag in a sign of support between the two countries.

“Cloak the White House tonight in the Israeli flag. You did it for Pride Month… I want to see the Israeli flag over the White House,” he said.

Graham made the comments while beating the war drums against Iran.
