A similar tweet was posted by Israel's Ambassador to the United Kingdom Mark Regev, expressing solidarity with the people of London. "Our thoughts are with #ParsonsGreen victims & their families at this difficult time," he wrote.


Internal Security Minister GIlad Erdan denounced the attack in his tweet. "Today terrorists sent message of hate. Israel & UK stand together against #terror," he wrote.

A blast went off on a train in Parsons Green station in west London on Friday morning, and it was later reported that the blast was heard as a result of a detonated bomb that had been placed on the train in what British police later confirmed was a "terrorist incident."



London Ambulance service stated that they have taken 18 patients to number of London hospitals, none thought to be in serious or life-threatening condition.
