Egypt's Al-Azhar, the world's leading Sunni Islamic institution, condemned the two suicide bombings that targeted security forces in the Tunisian capital on Thursday. The attack left one officer killed and 8 civilians wounded.
Al-Azhar asserted that the targeting and killing of civilians is a grievous sin which, all religions reject and curse its perpetrators.
It called for the need to unite sincere efforts to eliminate terrorism.
Al-Azhar also extended its sincere condolences to the Tunisian people and to the relatives of the deceased.
“May Allah grant the injured ones a speedy recovery and the world security and peace,” Al-Azhar said.
