The Prime Minister's Office extended Israel's condolences to Germany on Saturday night over the deadly shooting attack in Munich that claimed nine lives on Friday.

"Israel wishes the wounded a quick recovery," read the statement pledging Israel's solidarity with Germany "on this sad day."

German officials have ruled out that the 18-year-old gunman who carried out the tragic shooting at a shopping mall was related to Islamic terror. The shooter, a German-Iranian national, was found dead of self-inflicted gunshot wounded after the shooting rampage.
