Israel condemned the bombing of a train in London, an attack claimed by ISIS.
Israeli officials expressed solidarity with the residents of London following a terror attack on the London Underground Friday morning. A crude explosive device went off, injuring at least 22 people.
“This was a detonation of an improvised explosive device,” Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley of the London Metropolitan Police said at a press conference, as police began a manhunt for the attackers.
Prime Minister Netanyahu tweeted “We stand with PM (Theresa) May and the people of Britain in our common fight against the forces of terror.”
“Israel stands in solidarity with the people of London. Our thoughts are with #ParsonsGreen victims & their families at this difficult time,” Israeli Ambassador to the UK Mark Regev wrote on Twitter.
Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely also condemned the attack on Twitter, saying “Israel condemns the #terror attack in London. We stand with you and our prayers for a quick recovery go out to the injured.”
Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan, referring to the TLV in LDN festival, tweeted that “Last week we brought love & culture to London. Today terrorists sent message of hate. Israel & UK stand together against #terror.”
The Islamic State (ISIS) claimed responsibility for the attack.
The attack marks the fourth terrorist assault on London this year.
Speaking on the threat of global terrorism on Wednesday during an historic visit in Argentina, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu underscored that “terrorism attacks everyone – in Barcelona, in Berlin, in Manchester, in London, in Paris, in every country around the world terrorism strikes. Just as the attacks are indivisible, the response should be indivisible.”
