The Jewish Confederation of Ukraine is concerned about the situation on the Lebanese border in Israel. On the days of the great holiday, when all Jewish people light candles in memory of the miracle of Hanukkah and the Maccabees heroic deeds, we fully support Israel’s efforts to protect its sovereignty.

The aggressive activities of Hezbollah and similar terrorist organizations are an unacceptable threat to the security of Israel and the surrounding regions, and also violate the UN Security Council resolution.

The Jewish Confederation of Ukraine is confident that the IDF's Northern Shield operation will provide the necessary pressure on the Lebanese Shiite terrorist organization, which should immediately stop building tunnels on the border with Israel and will direct all efforts to peaceful coexistence with the citizens of Israel.

The Jews of Ukraine support the people of Israel in their desire to live in peace and tranquility. We are sure that our people are able to protect the right to the existence of their state, independent, democratic and free.
