According to Ha'aretz, the Israel Psychotrauma Center of Herzog Hospital in Jerusalem has volunteered its services to victims of today's attacks in London.

Although it was incorrectly reported earlier today that Israel had been given some warning of impending terrorist attacks in London, officials say that no such warning was received, reports the AP.

After the initial blasts had occurred, Israeli Finance Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who was in London for a conference, was instructed to stay at his hotel for safety reasons, according to the AP.

Earlier today the Israeli embassy in London had been put in state of emergency, according to the AP.

The Community Security Trust in London has instructed extra vigilance for London's Jewish community in the wake of today's attacks. More here from the Jerusalem Post.

A story in the Jerusalem Post, updated at 9:11am central time, states that thus far there are no known Jewish casualties.
