President Reuven Rivlin offered assistance to the Jewish community of Turkey in the aftermath of the Istanbul terror attack that killed three Israelis and reports of planned ISIS attacks on Jewish targets.
On Tuesday, Rivlin spoke by telephone with İshak İbrahimzadeh, president of the Jewish community of Turkey, the president’s office said in a statement. The president expressed his gratitude to Ibrahimzadeh for his community’s assistance to the injured in the March 19 attack and the families of those killed. The attack may have targeted an Israeli tour group.
“Thank you for your care; you reminded us that ‘all Jews are brothers,'” Rivlin said.
Along with the three Israelis, one Iranian national died in the Istanbul attack.
