Prime Minister Yair Lapid and President Isaac Herzog both send messages of condolences to Turkey after a bombing in Istanbul earlier today killed at least six people and wounded dozens.

“Shaken by news of the despicable bombing in Istanbul targeting innocent civilians,” says Herzog, “on behalf of the Israeli people, I extend our deepest sympathies to our Turkish friends and the victims’ families. The whole world must stand united and firm against terror.”

Lapid sends condolences “in the name of the State of Israel to the Turkish people,” and sends sympathies to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. “We will fight terrorism together, with a tough hand, anywhere that terror raises its head.”
