BEIRUT: Jordan’s Information Minister Mohammad Momani denounced Saturday the twin blasts in the northern city of Tripoli, calling the attacks terrorism that represents a great threat to regional and international security.
"The terrorist explosions that targeted Al-Taqwa and Al-Salam mosques and the recent ones in Beirut's southern suburbs a week ago prove that terrorism has no religion and is considered the most dangerous threat to regional and international peace and security,” Momani said in a statement.
He added that everyone should confront such terrorism and thwart its attempt to achieve its goals.
Twin car bombs ripped through two separate mosques in the city following Friday prayers killing at least 45 people and wounding over 500.
The deadly attack came days after a car bomb exploded in the bustling neighborhood of Ruwaiss in Beirut’s southern suburbs, killing 30 people.
