OIC condemns missile attack on Marib mosque

Jeddah (IINA) � The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has strongly condemned the missile attack on a mosque in the Yemeni province of Marib, which led to dozens of deaths and injuries of innocent people.

OIC Secretary General Yousef Al-Othaimeen described this bombing as a terrorist act and counter to the values of Islam and the sanctity of life. He stressed that the spilling of blood and targeting of the house of God constitute a criminal act committed only by those who stripped themselves from all religious, ethical and human values.

The secretary general reiterated the OIC’s full solidarity with the Yemeni legitimate government in its fight against terrorism and its efforts to maintain security and stability in all parts of the country.
