Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Monday expressed sorrow at the loss of shipping magnate Yuli Ofer, who died late Sunday night at the age of 87.

"Ofer was among the senior members of the Israeli business community, Netanyahu said. "He build with his late brother Sami a global shipping business, whose roots were planted deep in Israel, but was even more a people person than a man of business. Where he sailed boats, generosity followed in their wake."
