Israel condemns Mumbai blasts

The Government of Israel is deeply shocked and outraged by the bomb explosions in Mumbai, India that occurred on August 25th and caused the loss of many innocent lives.

Israel strongly condemns such despicable acts of violence and terror. There is no moral, political or religious justification for terrorism. We extend our condolences to the Indian Government and families of those who were killed or injured in the attacks.

Israel, as a victim of terror, calls upon all civilized nations to join in the effort to combat terrorism and put an end to this plague.
