BERLIN (Sputnik) — On Sunday, a truck, coming reportedly from an Arab neighborhood, rammed into a group of soldiers getting off a bus in Jerusalem, killing four soldiers, and injuring 15 others. The truck driver was shot dead.
"The federal government condemns this terrorist attack. I can assure you that we are on the side of Israel in fight with terrorism," Merkel said in the telegram as quoted by the German government press service.
Following the attack, Netanyahu said that all signs indicate that the driver was a supporter of Daesh.
