The top security aide to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke with his Sri Lankan counterpart and offered Israeli aid, on Sunday, after a string of bombing attacks Sunday left over 200 hundred dead and hundreds more injured, reported the Times of Israel.

Meir Ben-Shabbat, the head of the National Security Council, spoke to Udaya Seneviratne, secretary to Sri Lanka president Maithripala Sirisena, and offered condolences and Israeli humanitarian aid in the wake of the attacks.

However, it is not known whether Sri Lankan authorities would be accepting Israel’s offer or not.

Netanyahu earlier said in a statement: “Israel is ready to aid the authorities in Sri Lanka at this difficult hour. The entire world must unite in the fight against the scourge of terrorism.”
