The dual terrorist attacks in Volgograd serve as an urgent reminder for all peace loving countries to join forces in fighting terrorism, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu wrote to Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday.
Netanyahu's words came in a condolence message he sent the Russian people following terrorist attacks in the south-eastern Russian city, once known as Stalingrad, that killed more than 30 people, and wounded scores more.
"These despicable attacks are a painful reminder of the urgent need for all peace-loving nations to join forces in a concerted effort to eradicate the most dangerous sources of terrorism," Netanyahu wrote. "I have no doubt that the residents of Volgograd continue to demonstrate resilience, determination and courage for which they are known. Our thoughts and prayers with you and the Russian people at this trying time. "
