Federation of Islamic Organisations in Europe: The brutal Istanbul airport attacks were against the entire world
It is with deep sorrow that Federation of Islamic Organisations in Europe (FIOE) received news of the strongly condemned terrorist attacks, perpetrated Tuesday night in Istanbul Atatürk International Airport, resulting in a large number of victims from several countries.
FIOE denounces, in the strongest terms possible, these atrocities, which violate human lives, in an attempt to undermine security and terrorize communities, regardless the sanctity of the blessed month of Ramadan. As we conceive it, not only Turkey but also the entire world were targeted by these terrorist attacks in one of the most vital and cross-continental airports, that receives diverse human flows from many different countries. We are confident that such horrifying series of terrorist attacks throughout Turkey, over the last few months, will succeed neither in spreading the culture of fear nor in disrupting the daily life.
In this distress, FIOE expresses sincere condolences, and stands in solidarity with Turkey and its people. We also share the pain of adversity with the victim’s families, from either Turkey or other parts of the world. May the Almighty have mercy upon their souls, relieve the suffering of the injured and give them a speedy recovery, and protect Turkey and its people from all troubles.
