Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat sent a letter of solidarity to his London counterpart, Sadiq Khan, in wake of the Islamic terror attack in his city.

Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat expressed condolences to London Mayor Sadiq Khan in wake of the horrific Islamic terror attacks on London Bridge and nearby over the weekend. On Saturday evening, three terrorists murdered seven civilians and wounded scores, before being shot dead by British security forces.

“Terror is terror — anywhere in the world — and the free world must come together to fight evil,” Barkat wrote. “An attack in London is an attack against the values of freedom and democracy around the world,” he said.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with victims and their families at this time. Jerusalem stands with London — today and always,” Barkat added.

Britain has experienced a string of Islamic terror attacks over the past three months. Most recently, a suicide bomber killed 22 people, including children, at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester.

Addressing the Economic Community of West African States In Liberia on Sunday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu began his presentation expressing his sorrow at the horrific terror attack in London.+

Israel condemns the attack, Netanyahu said. “We send our condolences to the British people and we pledge our commitment to fight this scourge – this scourge that knows no bounds.”

These terrorists worship death,” Netanyahu stated. “They murder indiscriminately, but they will not frighten us. They will not terrorize us. They will only harden our resolve to defeat them. And together, together here in Africa, in the Middle East, in Europe, everywhere – together, we will defeat them faster.”
