Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon marched Sunday with New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio at the head of the annual Celebrate Israel Parade on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan.

Tens of thousands took part in the parade, including leaders of New York City and New York State, pro-Israel organizations and local schools and universities.

“It gives me great pride to march in the streets of New York and see the strength of the pro-Israel community,” said Danon. “Here at this parade, in the UN and everywhere else – the bond between the US and Israel is stronger than ever,” he concluded.

Ambassador Danon marched at the head of the parade together with Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat, members of the Knesset, Israeli diplomats and representatives of pro-Israel organizations.
