“We know at this time that two women have not been found. It is very difficult at the moment to say anything. We had a young woman and a young man who were missing earlier and then were found,” Maurice told the Jerusalem Post.

“For the moment what we know is that no Jews have died.”

Meanwhile, Israeli Army Radio reported that no Israelis were killed or injured in the attack. However,  Army Radio added that five members of the Jewish community in Nice were injured.
