Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sent a letter of condolence to French president Francois Hollande following a Germanwings plane crash that killed 150 people in the French Alps.

Earlier, on Tuesday, he also spoke with German chancellor Angela Merkel and Spanish prime minister Mariano Rajoy following the tragedy.

"In this difficult time, I am consoling the family of Israeli citizen Eyal Baum, and send condolences to all the families of the passengers from Germany, Spain, Turkey and Belgium who lost their loved ones," Netanyahu wrote. "Israel is ready to provide assistance in any way possible."

Baum, a 39-year-old from Hod Hasharon, was killed in Tuesday's crash.
