To express solidarity with Israeli soldiers and residents of the south and center currently under rocket attack, the University of Haifa’s 30 storey Eshkol Tower has become an Israeli flag. Throughout the conflict the tower’s 30 floors will be lit up in the shape of the flag, with the Star of David at its center.

The University of Haifa sends its deepest condolences to the families of the soldiers and civilians killed in recent days, and wishes a speedy recovery to the injured.
