Israeli President Shimon Peres on Sunday described the terrorist attack that injured a 9-year old girl in Psagot on Saturday evening as “shocking.”

In a statement, Peres said, “Firstly I want to wish a full and speedy recovery to Noam. There is no doubt that she is a victim of a terrorist attack. We have not yet found the perpetrator and are still searching. Any act of terrorism is shocking but I’m especially saddened when the victim is an innocent little girl who was sat at home. I felt it was right to express my personal shock and of course we all await the results of the security investigation into this difficult incident. Until then I wish Noam a full and speedy recovery.”

Peres spoke by phone with Noam’s father, Israel Glick, and asked him to pass on to Noam his wishes for her recovery.

Peres said, “Please tell Noam that I wish her well, a full recovery and my empathy for the suffering she is experiencing.”
