Israel is mourning with Sri Lanka after today’s bloody terrorist attacks that left more than a hundred dead and 400 wounded.
The explosions happened simultaneously at 3 hotels and three churches. Many of those killed and wounded were Christians who came to celebrate Easter Sunday. No one has claimed responsibility yet for the attacks, but it is rumored that the attacks were coordinated by ISIS.
Israeli President Reuven Rivlin posted a message on his Twitter account saying the attacks were a “despicable crime”. Rivlin emphasized that “we are all children of God, an attack on one religion is an attack against all of us.”
