Netanyahu's office said initially that he will not attend the rally in the French capital, noting that the rally includes a march on the street, which raises difficulties regarding Netanyahu's security arrangements.

Benjamin Netanyahu will, after considerable wavering, join world leaders in a mass rally in Paris in the wake of last week's deadly attacks, officials in the his office said on Saturday.

Earlier, an official in Netanyahu's office said security reasons make the his attendance in the rally impossible: "The option was examined, but due to the difficulty of securing Israel's prime minister at an event that includes marching on the street ,it appears it won't be possible," the official said.

The leaders of Britain, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Portugal, Poland, Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Ukraine, among others, had said they would attend the rally, on Sunday in Paris.
