Australia offered to assist Israel in the wake of the devastating fires that have claimed at least 40 lives.

“Australia stands ready to offer assistance to Israel,” Foreign Minister Kevin Rudd, who is due to visit Israel later this month, said in a statement Friday. “Australians know directly the devastating impact inflicted by bushfires.  I will travel to Israel later this month for an official visit and will convey my sincere condolences in person to Israeli leaders and people.”

The Israeli Embassy in Canberra thanked the Australian government.

“We wish to thank and acknowledge the government and people of Australia, who have graciously offered their assistance and expertise, even from the far side of the world,” Ambassador Yuval Rotem said in a statement. “These actions highlight the deep friendship between our two nations, and shows Australia’s willingness to stand with us during in this trying moment.”
