Israel’s “thoughts are with the victims of today’s plane crash near Moscow,” Israel’s foreign minister stated, 

By: United with Israel Staff

Israel conveyed its condolences to Russia following Sunday’s deadly Saratov Airlines plane crash that killed all passengers and crew on board, a total of 71 victims.

The Israeli foreign minister tweeted on Sunday that the country’s “thoughts are with the victims of today’s plane crash near Moscow. We send our sincere condolences to their families and friends.”

The Antonov An-148 twin-engine regional jet bound for Orsk in the southern Urals went down minutes after taking off from Moscow’s Domodedovo Airport Sunday.

The 65 passengers ranged in age from 5 to 79, according to a list posted by the Russian Emergencies Ministry.

Emergency teams combed snowy fields outside Moscow Monday for debris from the crashed Russian airliner and the remains of the people who died.

Transport Minister Maxim Sokolov said the search for victims’ remains will take a week. He noted that emergency teams already have found the plane’s flight data recorder, which is crucial for determining the crash’s cause.

Investigators quickly ruled out a terror attack but will not speculate on possible reasons for the crash.
