Israel has long been forced to battle terrorism, giving it expertise in the field of counter-terrorism. The Times of Israel reports that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has offered his nation's help to Belgium after yesterday's bombings in Brussels:
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday night spoke on the phone with Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel, offering condolences to the families of the victims in the deadly Brussels attacks and Israeli assistance to combat terror.
A series of bombings claimed by the Islamic State group on Tuesday ripped through the Brussels airport and a metro train, killing around 35 people in the latest attack to bring carnage to the heart of Europe.
According to a statement from the Prime Minister’s Office, Netanyahu told the Belgian premier that terror does not distinguish between countries.
He conveyed his condolences to the families of the victims, and “offered Israel’s help and cooperation in the war on terror,” the statement said, without elaborating.
The two leaders agreed to meet soon.
