Since the terror attacks that killed 129 people in Paris on Friday night, Israel has shared intelligence information at its disposal with French authorities, Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu said in a statement issued by his office today.
At a situation assessment at the Foreign Ministry, Netanyahu said that Israel has information relating to those involved in the attacks in French capital, a senior Israeli official said, Haaretz reports.
“We are not exactly a marginal player in this field, and the information that we have we are sharing with France and other relevant countries, not just over the past day,” said the prime minister. “It’s an important part of the cooperation against the terrorism of the Islamic State and of radical Islamic terrorism in general.”
Netanyahu ordered Israeli security and intelligence agencies to give France every assistance possible following the attacks, an official said. “Israel stands shoulder to shoulder with President François Hollande and with the French people in the joint war against terrorism,” Netanyahu said, “I offer the condolences of the people of Israel to the families of those murdered, and wish those wounded a speedy recovery.”
