Several videos of Israelis cheering and applauding doctors and nurses from their balconies have been making the rounds on social media.


The Israel Defense Force (IDF) tweeted a video compilation of Israelis applauding their medical personnel throughout the country.


“In a stunning display of solidarity today, thousands around Israel stood and loudly applauded the healthcare & medical professionals working tirelessly against #COVID19 to save lives,” they wrote. “Wherever you are in the world, take a moment to applaud those keeping you safe and healthy.”


Others shared some of their own videos.


Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt tweeted that it was “a beautiful moment.” He added: “Thank you to the brave medical workers across the world devoting themselves to caring for us through these unprecedented times.”



StandWithUs tweeted, “This is the spirit of #Israel! Thank you!”


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced on March 19 that the entire country will be on lockdown for at least the next seven days.


“This isn’t a request, this isn’t a recommendation, but a binding requirement that will be enforced,” he said.


There are currently 677 cases of coronavirus in Israel; six patients are in critical condition.
