STATEMENT BY PRESIDENT OF DIYANET GORMEZ REGARDING THE TERRORIST ATTACK IN ANKARA

2016.2.18

576c439c-3439-433b-ad23-6922574bb415_l I vehemently condemn the terrorist bomb attack in Ankara during the evening hours by a person or persons who have no humane feelings and who are void of all values. I extend my condolences to members of our security forces who have been martyred and citizens who have lost their lives and wish them all benediction from the Almighty and I also wish speedy recovery to our citizens who were wounded. The tyrants and murderer hordes who aim at human beings, who target life and peace should know that they will never escape the justice of the Almighty. Allah will sooner or later make those responsible for this brutal attack pay. Those involved in this sinister attack await great suffering in hell. Allah will definitely take revenge for the innocent souls that lost their lives. The Almighty is with the oppressed. The tyrants will face defeat both in this world and in the Day of Judgment. May the Almighty greet those who innocent brothers and sisters who lost their lives with benediction and help us heel our wounds. May the Almighty mend our souls whose patience and endurance has been strained. Deep condolences to our nation. Amen.
