TEHRAN (Press Shia) – Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement strongly condemned Friday’s terrorist attack that rocked a mosque in Arish city in Egypt’s North Sinai region and killed or wounded hundreds of worshippers.
In a statement released on Friday, Hezbollah offered deep condolences to the victims’ families as well as the Egyptian government and people and voiced hope for speedy recovery of the injured, the Arabic-language Al-Manar TV network reported.
Hezbollah’s statement said the “horrific crime which has violated the sanctity of the human life … is an outcome of the Wahhabi and Takfiri thought which sees all Muslims who do not approve of its principles as disbelievers that deserve to be murdered even if they are at mosques.”
It added that such terror attacks are aimed at spreading horror, instability and anarchy across the Arab and the Muslim world.
“The horrible crime also discloses the identity of the perpetrators who believe in criminality, not in law and religion.”
Hezbollah reiterated its call for serious confrontation with terrorist groups and states that support them politically, financially, and ideologically in order to reach their malicious purposes.
At least 300 people were reportedly killed and 109 injured when terrorists attacked the Rawda mosque in North Sinai on Friday.
Reports indicate the terrorists used explosives and heavy weaponry in their attack on the mosque.
Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi announced three days of nationwide mourning following the deaths of people in the attack.
