Mr. Edelstein said:

“We must unite to fight terrorism and not to group them into their terrorist and our terrorists.”

“Israel is committed to fight terrorism because terrorists use divisions between nations and even democratic countries.”

President Muhammadu Buhari has urged the Nigerian military to eradicate terrorist sect, Boko Haram before December.
