The Israeli Foreign Ministry has been receiving messages of solidarity from across the Arab world as the coronavirus crisis intensifies, including messages like, “May God protect you.”

Israeli daily Yediot Ahronot reported that the messages came in response to a social media post by the ministry, which showed a photo of three employees making heart signs with their hands.

The accompanying Arabic-language text read, “This is a message to you from Israel: We pray to God to protect the inhabitants of Arab countries.”

“The coronavirus that is spreading intensely in the world these days knows no borders, religions, and nationalities,” it added. “We are all human beings; we are all brothers.”

The post was viewed by approximately four million people in Arab countries, and received responses such as, “May God protect you and bless you.”

One user from Iran called it a “beautiful message of solidarity and peace.”

An Iraqi user posted, “Our hearts are with Israel and the world at large, in all its diversity, religions, and beliefs, to defeat this virus together.”

A woman from Morocco wrote, “May God preserve everyone. Humanitarianism first and foremost. Perfect health to all the sick.”

A Saudi Arabian user said, “Beautiful behaviour, good neighbourliness, love and the spread of peace are the way to heaven.”
