Israeli leaders were quick to respond with words of support and solidarity for France in the wake of the tragedy in Nice yesterday that left more than 80 dead.
“Israel strongly condemns the terrible terror attack. Israelis stand united with the French people,” said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a statement.
“Israel is willing to help the French government fight this evil until it is defeated,” he added.
President Reuven Rivlin on Friday sent a letter of condolence to his French counterpart and urged a united global front against terrorism.
“It is with pain and sorrow that I must once again write and express my deepest condolences, and those of all the Israeli people, following the horrific terror attack in Nice,” wrote Rivlin to Hollande.
Please join us in praying for the people of France and for God’s precious gift of shalom, peace, in our broken world.
