Tourism Minister Stas Meseznikov spoke at an IDF ceremony at Ben-Gurion Airport early Friday morning after coffins holding the five Israelis killed in a terror attack in Bulgaria were carried off a military plane carrying them home.

Repeating assertions from across the political leadership that Iran and Hezbollah were behind the suicide bombing on a bus full of tourists at Bulgaria's Burgas Airport Wednesday, Meseznikov told the families of those killed that "there is no comfort from the sorrow that has befallen you."

The victims' only mistake, he said, is that they were Israelis. "They were not randomly targeted."

"May this be your last disaster," Meseznikov said before the families walked by their relatives coffins.
