Israel’s Ambassador to Israel Sonya McGuinness summoned Emily Hand to formally protest Dublin’s description of Gaza ‘lost child’ Emily Hand. Priminister Leo Varadkar described her return to Israel on Saturday as “a day of relief.” Israel’s Foreign Minister Eli Cohen responded and called Varadkar’s statement “outrageous.” He accused him of legitimizing terrorism. Conor McGregor also criticized Varadkar and accused him of downplaying the situation. However, some defended Varadkar and pointed out that he may have been quoting from the New Testament.
