Lebanon Denounces New Zealand Deadly Attack
Lebanon denounced on Friday the deadly attack on two mosques in New Zealand that left around 49 individuals dead.
“We denounce the hideous terror crime against the mosques in New Zealand where worshippers believed it was safe and a sanctuary for prayer and tolerance," the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
The statement added: “Foreign Minister Jebran Bassil had previously warned of escalation of the extremist far right in Western societies, as he warns today of the rise of extremist leftist as a reaction, putting communities at great risk.”
The attacks on the Christchurch mosques left at least 49 dead, with one gunman –- identified as an Australian extremist -- apparently livestreaming the assault and publishing a manifesto online.
