Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Friday expressed his support for the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the wake of the bone chilling terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir that killed 45 CRPF personnel.
“To my dear friend, Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi, we stand with you, the security forces and the people of India following this heinous terrorist attack,” Netanyahu said on Twitter. “We send our condolences to the families of the victims,” the Israeli leader added.
The US President Donald Trump in response to the attack asked Pakistan to “end immediately” the support and safe haven provided to all terrorist groups operating on its soil and said that the attack strengthened “our resolve to bolster counter-terrorism cooperation and coordination between the US and India”.
The international community led by the US strongly denounced the Thursday terror attack by the Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) during which a suicide bomber carrying over 100 kgs of explosive crashed a car bomb into a convoy of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) in Pulwama district on the Srinagar-Jammu Highway.
