Turkey denounces planned arson violence on mosque
(MENAFN) Turkey criticized the planned arson assault on a mosque in Cyprus island on December 2.
According to a report by the Turkish Foreign Ministry “We strongly condemn the arson attack against the Grand Mosque in Larnaca, the Greek Cypriot Administration of Southern Cyprus,” noting “As a recent instance of Islamophobia, this attack and similar actions do not only target Muslims, but also threaten the common values of humanity, and reveal how certain circles are far from the understanding of peaceful co-existence.”
President of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) Ersin Tatar as well doomed the effort to burn the mosque.
As the Religious Affairs Presidency of TRNC announced, no deaths were recorded, and police detained over one suspect.
