The Congress's twitter handle also posted a meme of video clippings of Mr Modi giving hugs to various foreign leaders, including US President Donald Trump, Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, among others.

"We are systematically eliminating the tunnel infrastructure of Hamas and Islamic Jihad", the premier said, before warning that the two organizations should not "mess" with Israel.

This warmth was on display at the very start of the visit, when Modi - breaking with original plans and Indian protocol - personally met Netanyahu at the airport, reciprocating Netanyahu's meeting Modi when the Indian prime minister arrived in Israel for a visit last July.

Netanyahu said his comments were not only directed at the media "but also the public figures who have been sanctimoniously and hypocritically tutting".

"Yes, naturally we were disappointed, but this visit is a testimony that our relationship is moving on so many fronts, be it political, technological, tourism, security and so many other areas".

Dubbing India-Israel relationship as a "marriage made in heaven", Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday that even though the Jewish state was "disappointed" by India's vote at the United Nations against the Jerusalem issue, one negative vote will not affect the ties.

Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories Yoav Mordechai said in an interview Sunday with the Arabic-language Alhurra news network that Israel has attacked three terror tunnels in the past month and a half.

When Netanyahu landed in India, he immediately went with Modi to a ceremony for naming Teen Murti Square after the city of Haifa. Netanyahu is on a six-day state visit to hold delegation level talks with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

"Thank you, my dear friend Modi, on the warm and personal welcome to India", he wrote. At the ceremony, Netanyahu said, "This gesture highlights the special connection and common history between Israel and India". She pointed out the fact that the reciprocal visits in the past year reflect the friendship between the countries.

"Welcome to India, my friend PM @netanyahu!"

"My wife and I stand here as a mother and father to a young son who loves the state of Israel with every fiber of his soul", he said of his 27-year-old son. I think the key word here is defence.

But "many citizens have shown Yair and us warm support", he said. I want to say something else: "You give us a lot of strength to continue".
