Al-Azhar condemns the two mass shootings in the USA

  Al-Azhar Al-Sharif condemns in the strongest possible terms the two shooting incidents which took place in Texas and Ohio, USA, resulting in dozens of casualties and injuries.
Al-Azhar asserts that these terrorist attacks that targeted innocent citizens prove once again that terrorism has no religion and that the international community should unite its efforts for confronting the groups and ideas that incite hatred and terrorism.
Al-Azhar extends its sincere condolences to the people of the United States of America and to the families of the victims, asking the Almighty Allah to grant them patience and solace and to give the injured speedy recovery.
