Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon expressed Israel’s support to British Ambassador Matthew Rycroft.

“Israel stands as one with the British people as we all work together to defeat the scourge of terrorism,” Danon said. “We send our condolences and wish a speedy recovery to all those injured.”

Kulanu MK and former ambassador to the US Michael Oren said on his Twitter account that Israel’s solidarity with the UK comes from a common goal of defending freedom.

“My thoughts and sympathy are with London and the victims and their families,” he said. “Israel stands with you in fighting terror and defending freedom.”

MK Tzipi Livni (Zionist Union) said on Twitter: “Our hearts are with the British today.

Stand strong. The free world will defeat terrorism.”

In a letter to members of the House of Commons, MK Sharren Haskel (Likud) said that, as an Israeli, she understands “the pain and suffering caused by senseless attacks by extremist against innocent civilians.

“We must not lose hope nor give in to demands of those who seek to destroy all that is dear to us such as democracy, liberties, freedom of religion and tolerance,” she wrote. “We are steadfast in our commitment to continue our efforts in this struggle against the forces who wish to do us harm.”
