Madrid Stands firm with the people of Israel.
That is the message from the regional premier, Isabel Diaz Ayuso, today as the Casa de Correos building in the heart of Madrid was lit up in the blue and white of the flag of the State of Israel.
Ayuso also condemned the “repulsive attack” against innocent Israeli citizens who were gunned down by Hamas terrorists on Saturday 7th October.
The Real Casa de Correos is the headquarters of the Presidency of the Madrid regional Government and was lit up “as a symbolic gesture towards the Israeli people from Madrid’s Puerta del Sol.”
