(JTA) — Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate was lit up with the colors of the Israeli flag to show solidarity with the victims of Sunday’s terrorist attack in Jerusalem.

Israel was “moved by the gesture of the Berlin Senate” on Monday, said Israel’s ambassador to Germany, Avraham Nir-Feldklein, according to Israel’s i24 News.

“We are very grateful for the support of the German government and the people, [and] for the consoling words of solidarity,” Nir-Feldklein said.

Four Israeli soldiers aged 20 to 22 were killed when a Palestinian man rammed his truck into a group of soldiers on the promenade in an eastern Jerusalem neighborhood. Two of the four fallen soldiers had American citizenship. The driver of the truck was shot dead.
