Dozens of Israelis took to the streets of Tel Aviv to voice their solidarity for the victims of Sunday's deadly gun rampage in Orlando, Florida.

The shooting, carried out by an Islamist terrorist, targeted a gay club in Orlando, and left 50 people dead and a further 53 wounded.

Despite only recently having suffered a deadly Islamist shooting attack of their own - when two Hamas terrorists murdered four people and left several others seriously wounded in an attack at the popular Sarona Market last Wednesday - Tel Avivians held a candlelight vigil to commemorate the victims of the deadliest gun rampage in American history.

Earlier Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu joined world leaders in sending his condolences to US President Barack Obama, and condemning the brutal attack.
