Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his visit to Israel, starting today (4 July), is expected to meet Moshe, survivor of the 2008 Mumbai 26/11 terrorist attack.
Moshe was barely two when his parents Rivka and Gavriel Holtzberg were killed along with six others, by Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists in the Chabad House attack in Mumbai in 2008.
The Nariman House, also known as the Chabad House, was one of five locations that were targeted by the terrorists.
Moshe is 10 years old now. During the deadly attacks, he was saved by his Indian nanny, Sandra, who managed to escape the scene.
Both were brought to Israel later, to live with Moshe's maternal grandparents, Shimon and Yehudit Rosenberg.
PM Modi is expected to meet Moshe who was just a baby at the time... now he is all grown up. I think it will be a very emotional meeting with a very strong message.Israeli Ambassador to India Daniel Carmon, to ANI
