UK Ambassador to Israel Neil Wigan also condemned the attack.

“Devastated to learn of the terror attack today in Be’er Sheva - a city I know well. My condolences to the families of the victims and wishing a speedy recovery to the wounded. Such violence against civilians is contemptible,” he wrote on Twitter.
