Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, thanked BiH tripartite Presidency Chairman, Milorad Dodik, for the “unequivocal support for Israel” after the Israeli flag was displayed across the Palace of the President of Republika Srpska (RS), in Bosnia’s Serb-majority semi-autonomous entity.

The Israeli flag was displayed in Banja Luka, the administrative centre of the RS, to express support for Israel in light of the ongoing conflict in the Middle East.


Meanwhile, the Palestinian flag was displayed across Sarajevo’ landmark City Hall.

“We deeply appreciate this act of solidarity in this difficult time for us when terrorist organizations randomly fire rockets at our citizens,” a letter Netanyahu addressed to Dodik reads, according to the SRNA news agency.

The Israeli PM wrote that Israel would be grateful if support “for its right to self-defence until the threat to Israeli citizens is removed” would continue.

“Israel will remain strong and will overcome the current challenge as we have done before,” he added.

Meanwhile, Dodik’s Bosniak colleague in the Presidency, Sefik Dzaferovic, as well as numerous other BiH officials, called for an end to the conflict in Gaza.
