Marisol Touraine visited Tel Aviv’s Ichilov Hospital on Thursday and met with the Israeli health minister, Yakov Litzman. She recounted the “dramatic terror attack at the end of last year” in France and said her country needs to “think about the best way to prepare our hospitals in case of new attacks.” Touraine added that there will be cooperation between the two countries “to learn from the Israeli experience.” Her visit comes as Europe struggles to cope with security threats from Islamic State militants that have claimed the Paris and Brussels terror attacks.
