UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon sent a personal letter to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Friday expressing his condolences for the tragedy caused by the Carmel fire.

Ban praised regional countries who have assisted Israel and said the UN would help in any way possible.

"I was deeply saddened by the loss of life, from the suffering caused to the people and from the damage caused to nature," wrote Ban.

Israeli Ambassador to the UN, Meron Reuben, called Ban and expressed gratitude for the letter of support.
