The State of Qatar has expressed its condemnation and denunciation of the armed attack that targeted worshippers at a mosque in Quebec City, northeast of Canada, resulting in a number of casualties.
The Foreign Ministry, in a statement yesterday, stressed that such criminal acts which target innocent civilians and violate the sanctity of mosques are contrary to all humanitarian values, principles and laws, and threat peaceful coexistence.
The ministry also called for concerted regional and international efforts to eradicate the phenomenon of violence and terrorism in all its forms, which poses threat to international peace and security, stressing solidarity with the Canadian government and people.
Meanwhile, GCC Secretary-General Dr Abdullatif bin Rashid al-Zayani described it as a terrorist attack that contradicts with all humanitarian and moral values. He expressed the GCC’s solidarity with the Canadian government.
A French-Canadian university student was the sole suspect in the mosque shooting, Canadian authorities said yesterday, in what Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called “a terrorist attack.”
