An attack on France is an attack on everyone, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told French President Francois Hollande on Thursday, in a letter of condolences following Wednesday’s terror attack in Paris.

“Please accept my most profound condolences following yesterday’s savage terrorist attack in Paris,” Netanyahu wrote.

“This attack on France is an attack on all of us. Free peoples everywhere must unite to confront radical Islamist terrorism and to protect ourselves against this threat to our common civilization.”

“The people of Israel stand with the people of France at this difficult time. Please convey our sympathies to the families of the victims and our best wishes for the full and speedy recovery of the injured,” Netanyahu wrote the French president.

Wednesday’s attack targeted the Paris headquarters of the satire magazine Charlie Hebdo.

The paper was attacked by two Islamist terrorists, Cherif and Said Kouachi, who are still at large but were spotted on Thursday in northern France while robbing a gas station armed with Kalashnikov assault rifles and rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs).

The two reportedly shouted "the Prophet is avenged" as they murdered their victims - the satirical paper has been accused of mocking Mohammed in the past.
