    Dozens of people gathered near the Paris kosher shop on Monday to greet the Israeli prime minister, who payed tribute to the victims of the recent terrorist attack.

    PARIS, January 12 (Sputnik) – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has visited the kosher food supermarket in eastern Paris where a terrorist killed several hostages last Friday, to pay tribute to the victims and their families.

    Dozens of people gathered near the kosher shop on Monday to greet the Israeli prime minister, with some people carrying the flag of Israel.

    "I embraced the two brothers and told them the entire Jewish People embraces the families — a moment of genuine Jewish solidarity," Netanyahu said on his Twitter account.

    Last Friday, a lone gunman took several people hostage at the kosher shop in the 20th arrondissement of Paris, killing four Jews. The gunman is also suspected in the killing of a female police officer in the Paris suburb of Montrouge the previous day.

    The gunman has been linked to the two killers in the Wednesday attack on the office of the French Charlie Hebdo magazine.

    On Sunday, a unity rally took place in Paris, with people calling for an end to extremist violence. More than three million people participated in the march, alongside over 40 world leaders, walking with linked hands in solidarity with the victims and their families.
