Israel’s opposition leader Isaac Herzog (Zionist Union) said on his Twitter page Friday that “the vile terrorism has returned in full force and destroyed the celebration of freedom, equality and fraternity. This is our generations world war. my condolences to the French nation and the families of the killed and wounded.”

At least 84 people were killed Thursday evening when a terrorist drove a truck at high speed into a crowd watching Bastille Day fireworks in the French Riviera city of Nice late on Thursday, officials said.

Gideon Saar (Likud), Israel’s former Interior Minister wrote that the attack was a “mass murder of People” who believe in the french values and said “my heart is with the french nation and the families of the large number of victims.”

Donald Trump the presumptive Republican Presidential nominee expressed condolences for the victims of the attack and postponed the announcement of his running mate.

“In light of the horrible attack in Nice, France, I have postponed tomorrow’s news conference concerning my Vice Presidential announcement,” said Trump. He said in a Fox News interview: “We will announce tomorrow when it will be.”

Trump, who has proposed banning Muslims from “terror states” from entering the United States, said in another Fox News interview that the attack in France showed the United States and the rest of the world needed to get tougher in the fight against Islamist militants.

“This has to be dealt with very harshly,” Trump said.

Hillary Clinton, Trumps Democratic rival, also condemned the attack stating that “once again, it appears the terrorists have struck at one of our closest allies in Europe,” adding that “Every American stand in strong solidarity with the people of France, and we say with on voice: we will not be intimidated.”
