The Jewish Agency for Israel will give financial aid to the families of those killed and wounded in the bombing in Bulgaria on Wednesday, it announced on Thursday.

The money, which was raised by the Jewish Federations of North America, will help address "supplemental needs not covered by Israeli government bodies." JAFI Chairman of the Executive Natan Sharansky said that "the assistance provided by The Jewish Federations of North America demonstrates the solidarity of Jews around the world with the terrible pain of those Israelis wounded in the attack and with the deep mourning of the families of those killed." JAFI has spent more than NIS 100 million helping terror victims since 2002.
