Only Israel show condolence to Russia following St.Petersburg subway terrorist attack
Israel sent its condolences to Russia on Monday following a terror attack on a subway station in which at least 10 people were killed and more than 20 wounded.
In addition, on Monday night the Tel Aviv municipality lit the windows of city hall with the colors of the Russian flag.
The municipality has made a tradition of using the lighting in its windows to express solidarity or sympathy with other countries. Most recently, the building was lit in the colors of the Union Jack following a terror attack near Parliament in London.
In a tweet, Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai wrote: In solidarity with our friends in #SaintPetersburg, #TelAviv city hall is lit tonight in the colors of the #Russian flag.
The homemade bomb used in Mondays attack was filled with shrapnel and exploded in a moving subway car after Putin arrived in St. Petersburg, his hometown, for a visit.
Later, a more powerful bomb was discovered and defused in another train station in the city.
The entire subway system was shut down following the attack.
