(Communicated by the Foreign Ministry Spokesman)

Israel condemns the terror attacks in New Delhi in the strongest possible terms. These heinous attacks were carried out on the eve of Diwalli festival in the hopes of disrupting this sacred time for the people of India. This is a further instance of terrorists’ brutal disregard for innocent lives. It is up to all of us in the international community to fight terrorism in any and all forms.

Our thoughts are with the victims and their families and with and people of India during this difficult time. Israel is also willing to share its experience in treating such injuries caused by explosives in order to save lives and ease the suffering of those who were hurt in the attacks.
