Shafaqna – Al-Khoei Foundation issued a statement denouncing terrorist attack on worshippers in Egypt.
The statement reads: attack on worshippers on Friday prayers today in Sinai, Egypt which resulted in the death of nearly 200 people and rising and the injury of many is an abhorrent act beyond human comprehension. To target people who are peacefully exercising their freedom to worship in a village must be very devastating and shocking, especially to the populations affected. The Al-Khoei Foundation offers their heartfelt condolences to all friends and families of the victims and to the Egyptian people.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the departed souls and their families and friends. We pray for the speedy recovery of the injured.
All communities must come together to try and put an end to the targeting of attacks on places of worship which has become an endemic feature of recent conflicts. We call upon the international community, faith organisations and the United Nations to act unanimously to provide international conventions to protect the integrity of human life and places of worship.
