US President Barack Obama condemned the "barbaric" attack against Israelis in Bulgaria Wednesday, calling it "outrageous."

"I strongly condemn today’s barbaric terrorist attack on Israelis in Bulgaria," Obama said in a statement, saying his thoughts and prayers were with families of the victims.

"These attacks against innocent civilians, including children, are completely outrageous. The United States will stand with our allies, and provide whatever assistance is necessary to identify and bring to justice the perpetrators of this attack," Obama said.

"As Israel has tragically once more been a target of terrorism, the United States reaffirms our unshakeable commitment to Israel’s security, and our deep friendship and solidarity with the Israeli people."
