Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu communicated his condolences to the Israeli victims of Saturday’s suicide bombing in the heart of Istanbul’s shopping and tourist district.

In a letter addressed to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Davutoglu wrote that the attack “has shown us once again that the international community as a whole should act in a resolute manner against the ignoble objectives of terrorist organizations.”

“I would like to convey my condolences to the families of the Israeli citizens who lost their lives in the heinous attack which happened in Istanbul and to the people of Israel, and wish a speedy recovery to the wounded,” the Turkish prime minister said.
