Buffalo, NY – Mayor Byron W. Brown announced today Buffalo City Hall will be lit blue and white tonight in solidarity with the State of Israel after yesterday’s attacks from Hamas.

Terrorism has no place in society, and we will continue to stand in solidarity with Israel as we have done since 1948.”
