US President Barack Obama called Prime Minster Binyamin Netanyahu on Wednesday night to express his condolences for the death of at least seven Israelis in a terror attack in Burgas, Bulgaria earlier in the day.

The two leaders agreed that the US and Israel would work together to investigate the attack.

Netanyahu thanked Obama for the call, saying that Iran and Hezbollah are waging a terror campaign around the world. "Iran is a global terror state that must face the consequences of its actions," the prime minister said.
