Israeli Leaders Express Condolences to Reagan Family


Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu expressed condolences to the family of Nancy Reagan, the former first lady, who died at the age of 94 on Sunday.
“I remember Nancy as a noble woman who supported President [Ronald] Reagan and stood by his side,” the prime minister said. “She will be remembered as a great friend of the state of Israel.”

President Reuven Rivlin said: “Today I lower my head together with the citizens of the U.S. at the loss of First Lady Nancy Reagan. Reagan was President Ronald Reagan’s dedicated wife, a true partner in the president’s unique leadership, including his strong friendship with Israel.”

“I recall her noble nature and fierce fight against [illegal substances] and alcohol among youth. During her time as First Lady, Reagan would illuminate the White House with a big smile and open heart. I extend my most sincere condolences to the whole Reagan family, her friends and all citizens of the United States,” said Rivlin.
