In a statement of support for the people of France following another massive Islamic terror attack, Netanyahu vowed to help defeat “this evil.”
In the wake of the horrific terror attack in Nice, France, on Thursday evening, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu expressed strong condemnation and offered assistance to the French government.
In what was confirmed to be an act of Islamic terror, the driver of a large truck mowed down pedestrians who were out celebrating Bastille Day. By morning, the death toll reached 84, and about 100 people were wounded. “All of France is under the threat of Islamic terrorists,” a President Francois Hollande said.
“Israel condemns in the strongest terms last night’s horrific attack in Nice,” Netanyahu stated. “We are again reminded that terrorism can strike anywhere and must be fought everywhere.
“Israelis stand united with the people of France today,” he continued. “We join you in mourning those who were killed and wish a speedy recovery to the wounded.
“Israel is ready to help the French government fight this evil until it is defeated.”
