Developments in Israel, on the backdrop of the attacks by Hamas on the country’s territory and the anticipated ground operation by the Israeli armed forces into Gaza, were discussed on Friday in a meeting between the Georgian President Salome Zourabichvili and Hadas Meitzad, the Israeli Ambassador to the country.

Zourabichvili expressed her “deep concern and sadness” over victims of the attacks and offered “unwavering support and solidarity” towards Israel on behalf of Georgia.

She also handed a letter of condolence she had sent to her Israeli counterpart Isaac Herzog to the Ambassador.

Starting on Saturday, Hamas launched more than 5,000 rockets from Gaza into Israel territory, with the group’s fighters entering Israeli territories and kidnapping citizens, both alive and dead. The Israeli Government declared a state of war alert, has bombed Gaza and is preparing for an expected ground operation into the sector.

Georgian officials, including the country’s Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili, President Salome Zourabichvili and Parliament Speaker Shalva Papuashvili, condemned the attacks on Saturday.
