Immigration and Absorption Minister Ze'ev Elkin called on French Jews to "come home" to Israel in statement released by his office on Friday.

"Anti-Semitism is growing, terrorism is running rampant, and according to reports, ISIS is committing murder in broad daylight. We are prepared to open our arms to the Jews of France," said Elkin in response to Friday's suspected terror attack in the South of France. Unknown persons exploded gas containers at the premises of a factory, leaving one dead and several wounded, police sources said.

A decapitated body was found at the site, along with a flag bearing Islamist inscriptions.
