This evening, the White House will be illuminated in the blue and white colors of the Israeli flag as a symbol of the United States’ 75-year relationship, the White House says in a statement.

“This symbolizes the ironclad support and solidarity of the American people with the people of Israel in the wake of the barbaric terrorist attacks committed by Hamas,” the statement adds.
