Intelligence Minister Israel Katz relayed his sympathies to the British people on Tuesday after a suicide bombing in Manchester left at least 22 people killed and some 60 other wounded.

While British authorities have yet to identify the perpetrator of the terror attack, the Israeli ministers said it "is a painful reminder that we are in the midst of a global war against radical Islamic terrorism that challenges the culture and values ​​of the free world."Katz further pointed to US President Donald Trump's visit to Middle East this week, saying it highlighted "the opportunity for intelligence, security and civil cooperation between countries in the regional and global arena in order to foil terror attacks all over the world and deal also with extremism and terror at the source."

ISIS later claimed responsibility for the Manchester attack. According to Israeli media, the terrorist group said in an online video posted that "This is just the beginning."
