President Shimon Peres on Sunday called Norwegian King Harald V to express his condolences over Fridays terror attacks that left 98 people dead in Norway.

"Your country is a symbol of peace and freedom," Peres told the king according to an official statement. "In Israel we followed the events over the weekend in Norway and the attack on innocent civilians broke our hearts. It is a painful tragedy that touches every human being. We send our condolences to the families that lost their loved ones and a speedy recovery to the wounded. Israel is willing to assist in whatever is needed."

The king thanked Peres for the call, adding that the attacks are "a terrible tragedy for our entire nation. We are shocked and grieving as a result of this despicable murder."
