Strategic Affairs Minister Moshe Ya'alon spoke at the ceremony in memory of the Burgas terror victims in Bulgaria on Tuesday, commenting that  "dozens were injured simply because they were Jews and Israelis."

Speaking at the central synagogue in Sofia, Ya'alon continued: "Every victim represents an entire world, a life story cut short, dreams that will not be fulfilled."

"Terrorism does not distinguish between blood and blood, and from person to person. Killers try to reach any place in the world to attack innocent Jews and Israelis, and would not hesitate to kill anyone who stood in their way when they implement their actions."
