Foreign Minister Yair Lapid says he updated his counterparts from Bahrain, Morocco, Egypt, and the UAE about the deadly shooting attack in Hadera.

“All the foreign ministers denounced the terror attack and asked to send condolences to the families and wishes for the recovery of the wounded,” Lapid says in a statement.

The foreign ministers are at Sde Boker in southern Israel for the Negev Summit. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken is also due to attend but has not yet arrived.

““The despicable terror attack this evening is an attempt by violent extremists to sow fear and strike at the fabric of life here,” Lapid says. “The State of Israel will fight terror without compromise. We stand firmly together with our allies against anyone who tries to harm us.”
