HSH Prince Albert has written to the President of Israel. In his letter, published on Monday evening, the Sovereign said: “Mr President, I learned with horror of the terrorist attacks which are affecting your country and which have caused numerous victims, some in their youth. My thoughts go out, in sadness and dismay, to the families of the missing people as well as those injured and taken hostage.

“I fervently hope that the peoples of the Mediterranean basin can unite around the values of peace, justice and respect, so that they can defeat these barbaric acts. I assure you, and the Israeli people, of our support and compassion in this cruel ordeal.”
