The Israeli prime minister’s office said that Netanyahu spoke with Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta on Sunday, where he conveyed his condolences in the wake of the “reprehensible terrorist attack” perpetrated on April 2.

Netanyahu also told Kenyatta that Israel and Kenya stood together in the war against terrorism and offered assistance to the east African nation. Israel and Kenya have long enjoyed a close relationship in areas such as agriculture, education and more recently in military and intelligence assistance in the fight against terrorism.
