President Reuven Rivlin responded Friday to the death of Saudi Arabia's Abdullah ibn Abdilazīz, saying he "was an example of balanced and responsible leadership rooted in deep religious tradition."

"As a "guardian of holy sites" for Islam, King Abdullah worked to honor the sensitivity and sanctity of Jerusalem and sought to promote his vision for a prosperous region," Rivlin said in a statement.

"His smart policy contributed greatly to Middle East stability."
