Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu boarded a plane to Paris on Sunday morning where he was set to take part in an anti-terror march alongside world leaders, something he says he "has been calling on for a long time."

During remarks before his flight, Netanyahu said that tonight he will be meeting with French President Francois Hollande at the Central Synagogue. He will also meet with members of the Jewish community.

He said that he plans on telling the French Jewish community that "any Jew who wants to come to Israel will be welcome with a warm embrace."

Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman and Jewish Agency head Natan Sharansky were on the plane with Netanyahu. Bayit Yehudi leader Naftali Bennett was also expected to attend.

Hours prior, AFP reported that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas would also be traveling to Paris to take part in the rally.
