SIMFEROPOL/AQMESCIT (QHA) -

The Spiritual Administration of Crimean and Sevastopol Muslims and Mufti Haji Emirali Ablayev strongly condemn the terror attacks that occurred in Beirut (Lebanon) and Paris (France) and express their deepest condolences to the families of the victims, says a statement posted on the organization’s website.

“A double terror attack in Beirut claimed the lives of more than 40 people, while a series of terror attacks in Paris killed as many as 127 people. These people fell victims to the horrible crimes against humanity and peaceful way of life. The perpetrators cite political, religious and other reasons to justify the attacks, but they are a menace to global stability and, therefore, cannot be justified.

Whoever claims responsibility for the attacks has nothing to do with God for they were committed in violation of all religious and humanitarian principles. World religions should present a united front against barbarism, tyranny, overt and covert oppression and injustice which provide fertile ground for spreading the evil of terrorism!” reads the statement.

The Muftiyat also expressed hope that those responsible for the attacks would be brought to justice.

“We pray for the deceased to find peace and grace of the Almighty,” says the statement.

It was reported earlier that a series of terror attacks ISIS claimed responsibility for occurred in Paris’s Belle Ville, Republic Square, Le Gal, Bataclan, Paris Université 10, Trocadero, and Stade de France on November 13.

According to preliminary reports, 153 people were killed and 300 wounded in the attacks. 8 terrorists were eliminated by police.

A double terror attack in Beirut on November 12 claimed the lives of more than 40 people and left 200 wounded 200. ISIS claimed responsibility for the attacks. The blasts occurred in the southern Beirut suburb of Burj al-Barajneh where mostly Shia and Hezbolla supporters reside, who fight on Bashar Asad’s side in Syria.
