Flags at Half-Staff in Support of Israel


PIERRE, S.D. – Today, Governor Kristi Noem ordered that flags be flown at half-staff statewide effective immediately until sunset on Friday October 13th, 2023, in support of the State of Israel.


“South Dakota, America, and the world must stand firm in our resolve to support the Israeli people,” said Governor Kristi Noem. “We are praying for a swift resolution to this war. We support Prime Minister Netanyahu and his armed forces as they strike swiftly, truly, and with justice.”


In the wake of the devastating invasion of Israel by Hamas terrorists, Governor Noem issued a statement of support for the people of Israel and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, which can be found here.
