The mayor of the Sydney municipality of Woollahra visited Canberra yesterday with a personal message to Israel’s ambassador to Australia.

This follows a letter Mayor Richard Shields sent to Ambassador Amir Maimon earlier this month following Oct 7 advising him of the Council “acknowledging this shocking act and calling for my fellow Councillor colleagues to stand with Israel and condemn the deadly attacks by Hamas on Israel”.

A Mayoral Minute included a decision “to fly the Israeli flag to demonstrate our solidarity with Israel.”
