We condemn vehemently the brutal and inhuman terror attacks that hit the capital city of Belgium, Brussels today.
We would like to make sure that we firmly stand in solidarity with the Belgian people and all peoples of Europe in these dark days. Our hearts are with those who lost their lives and their beloveds in these heinous attacks.
We are deeply saddened to witness the escalation of cross-border attacks against civilian peoples with increasingly heavier human tolls –from Beirut to Reyhanlı, from Suruç to Paris, fromBaghdad to Kobanê, from Tunisia to Istanbul, and from Ankara to Brussels. Obviously, the governments who aid these organizations are also responsible for the crimes against humanity that they have been committing across the world with such ease. Thus, we would hereby like to underline the urgent necessity of raising international solidarity against organizations like the ISIS and their aides and collaborators.
We express our deepest condolences to the families of those who lost their lives in Brussels today and pray for rapid recoveries of the wounded.
We, once again, express our deepest pain for those societies who have been subjected to such brutal and inhuman attacks.
