Israel expresses joy at Pakistan’s loss to India

Adds that it was 'moved' by Indian solidarity

After its win over Pakistan in the World Cup on Saturday, India received praise from an unlikely place – Israel.

The country’s official account on X, formerly Twitter, posted that solidarity shown by Indians had ‘moved’ the country.

The post then expressed happiness at India’s win, before going a step further.

“We are happy that India🇮🇳emerged victorious in the #INDvsPAK match at #CWC23 and that Pakistan was unable to attribute its victory to the terrorists of #Hamas,” the post said.

The post comes days after Pakistani Bantsman Muhammad Rizwan dedicated his match-winning century against Sri Lanka to the people of Palestine.

“This was for our brothers and sisters in Gaza,” he had written.

Rizwan’s post had led to utrage in India which only died down after ICC clarified to an Indian journalist that the statement did not amount to a breach of tournament rules since it did not involve an action on the field.

Over 2,000 Palestinians have been killed by Israel in air raids in retaliation for Hamas attacks that killed over 1,000 Israelies last Saturday.

India defeated Pakistan by seven wickets in their much hyped World Cup clash on Saturday.
