Indian twitterati express solidarity with Israel ahead of PM Modi's visit

Ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Israel, the Indian Twitterati have come up on the social media website to express solidarity with the Jewish state with the hashtag IndiaWithIsrael.
The hashtag, which is trending on Twitter, came to light after ICL Fertilizers, a part of the Israel-based firm ICL, announced that it has signed several contracts for the supply of an aggregate of 835,000 metric tonnes of potash to its customers in India.
It then gained momentum following the Delhi Police's statement that its personnel were being trained by security experts from Israel in handling certain critical situations.
One of the tweets read "you have been regularly tortured by some of your neighbours If we could help, will definitely do it #IndiaWithIsrael,".Another Indian tweeted, "Israel is India's most trusted Middle East ally, and one of its closest friends in the world. #IndiaWithIsrael".
In a historic first, Modi is set to visit Israel later this year, becoming the first Indian Prime Minister to visit the country.
