Minister of the Interior Eli Yishai responded sharply to the terrorist attack in Bulgaria that killed 7 Israeli youth and wounded several dozen others. "Once again terrorists have proved that their hatred of Israelis and Jews has no borders." Like Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu, Minister Yishai also stated that the Iranian regime had orchestrated the attack using proxy forces. He added that he prays for the safety of the wounded and sending condolences to the families of those murdered. Other Israeli leaders made similar strongly worded statements regarding the attack and vowed reprisals.
