Israel has offered to pay a monthly stipend to the daughter of the non-Jewish Bulgarian bus driver killed in a terror attack that targeted Israeli tourists in Burgas in July, the Sofia News Agency reported on Friday.

Mustafa Kyosov's 11-year-old daughter Salihe will be given a $150-per-month stipend until she turns 18, Bulgarian television quoted Mehdi Safadi, Deputy Minister Ayoub Kara's bureau chief as saying.

In August, the Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI) announced at a ceremony in the Bulgarian capital of Sofia that it will include the family of Mustafa Kyosov among recipients of aid from the Fund for the Victims of Terror.
