Governor Orders Flags To Half-Staff In Mourning For Lives Lost In Israel


Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham ordered all flags in the state of New Mexico to half-staff from Oct. 13 to Oct. 16 in mourning for the people killed in the attack on Israel.   

“Today, New Mexico is lowering our flags in memory of the lives lost in the terrorist attack by Hamas on Israel,” said Gov. Lujan Grisham. “We are all horrified by the vicious murders and kidnappings of the innocent, women, men, children and senior citizens in Israel. While we mourn the victims, may their memories live on in the hearts and minds of their loved ones.

“New Mexico stands 100% with the nation of Israel, and the right of Israel to defend itself. We must always stand together against terrorism.”

All flags in the state will remain at half-staff until sundown on Oct. 16.
