The Municipality of Jerusalem lit up the city's iconic Chords Bridge with green and red on Sunday, the colors of the Moroccan flag, as the earthquake-stricken nation observes three days of mourning following the earthquake, measuring 6.8 on the Richter scale, that killed over 2,000 people on Friday night.
“Jerusalem, the capital of Israel, sends its condolences and prayers to the families of those affected by the earthquake, as well as wishes for a speedy recovery to the injured,” the Jerusalem Municipality stated.
“Morocco is a true friend of the State of Israel, the Jewish people and the city of Jerusalem. We will assist as much as is necessary in whatever way we can to the Moroccan people and their government.”
The side-spar cable-stayed bridge spans the main entrance to the city since 2008 and has become an iconic sight of Israel’s capital.
