TAMPA, Florida — The Florida Department of Transportation has illuminated the Sunshine Skyway Bridge in blue and white as a demonstration of support for Israel, and this lighting display will continue throughout the week.
“The terrorist attacks carried out on Israel over the past few days are horrific and as Americans and as Floridians, we stand with the people of Israel in this trying time,” Gov. Ron DeSantis said in a statement. “As I previously directed the Department of Management Services to light the Historic Capitol, I’ve directed FDOT to light the Sunshine Skyway Bridge blue and white to show our support for Israel.”
On Tuesday, President Joe Biden confirmed that Americans are among the individuals being held hostage by Hamas, and sadly, the attacks have resulted in the loss of at least 14 American lives. President Biden unequivocally described these attacks as “evil.”
