Modi Meets Israeli Boy Who Survived The 26/11 Mumbai Terror Attack

Published on 6 July, 2017 at 2:53 pm By

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is on a historic tour to Israel. Be it the place where he is staying or the people he is meeting, Modi has made headlines. The fresh batch of news from Israel talks about his heart-warming meeting with an 11-year-old 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks survivor.

Moshe Holtzberg survived the terrorist attack on Chabad House (Jewish center) in Mumbai in 2008. Unfortunately, both his parents were killed by the terrorists but 2-year-old baby Moshe survived. Before meeting the Indian Prime Minister he was “emotional and excited” but when the time came, he expressed his feelings with, “Dear Mr. Modi, I love you and your people in India.” PM Modi too kept his arms around the boy as he spoke about his parents and India.

The hearts of people are warmed in both nations seeing these two meet. Moshe was about to turn 2 when the attacks happened. His nanny, Sandra Samuels was hiding from the terrorists when she heard the baby cry. She found Moshe standing between his parents’ bodies and ran away from the building saving his life. Israel later awarded her with an honorary citizenship.
