As France continues to recover from an attack by a terrorist who rammed his truck through a crowd at a Bastille Day celebration in Nice, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu shared his thoughts on the attack. Netanyahu called for a “unified and aggressive stance against the murderous terror that affects the entire world.”
Also this week in Israel in the News:
- A French Jewish woman badly injured in the attack, Raymonde Mamane, died from her injuries earlier this week. Her sister, Bension, remains hospitalized in a coma from her injuries.
