Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in response to the mass shooting at gay nightclub Pulse in Orlando, Florida early Sunday morning, "In the name of the Israeli government and the Israeli people, I am sending our sincere condolences to the American people."

Netanyahu said, "Israel stands shoulder to shoulder with the US in this tragic hour. We share in in the losses of the victims' families and we are sending our best wishes of recovery to the wounded."
