Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu issued a statement Saturday night saying that Israel identified with the "deep pain and grief" of the Norwegian people.

The Foreign Ministry issued a statement saying that Israel "expresses its shock at the revolting terror attacks in Oslo, which have taken the lives of innocent victims. Nothing at all can justify such wanton violence, and we condemn this brutal action with the utmost gravity."

The statement said that Israel would offer Norway any assistance it may require, an offer repeated in a phone conversation Defense Minister Ehud Barak had with his counterparts in Norway. The Norwegians, according to a statement issued by Barak's office, thanked Israel for the offer, but said that at this time they did not need any assistance.

Israel offered forensic assistance, help in evacuating the wounded, and medical support.
