Israeli President Shimon Peres expressed sympathy and friendship on behalf of the people of Israel to President Obama in the wake of superstorm Sandy.

In a letter sent to Obama Thursday, Peres wrote that he is "joined by the people of Israel in an expression of concern for the ravages caused by hurricane Sandy and the destruction it left in its wake. Our hearts go out to the people of America and I would like to extend my deepest sympathy and condolences to the families who have lost their loved ones in this superstorm."

"I am sure that as in previous occasions when the people of America had to face challenges posed by nature or man, this time, too, you will prevail," Peres wrote.

Peres concluded: "We are looking with admiration upon the courage of the American people and its leaders in dealing with the present ordeal. Our hearts are with you."
