A deadly terror attack in London, England was strongly condemned by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday shortly after returning back from an official state visit to China.

"Israeli citizens were among the first to deal with stabbing and vehicular terror attacks," the prime minister said in a statement. "We stand shoulder to shoulder with British citizens and the civilized world against radical Islamic terrorism," added Netanyahu.At least three people were killed near Britain's parliament Wednesday afternoon after a man plowed his car into a group of bystanders, which UK authorities said was an act of terror inspired by the Islamic State militant group.

The suspected terrorist was later shot dead after he stabbed and killed a police officer following the vehicle attack.

Those injured included 12 Britons, three French children, two Romanians, four South Koreans, one German, one Pole, one Chinese, one American and two Greeks.
