Egypt’s presidency, Foreign Ministry and Al-Azhar have condemned Tuesday’s terror attacks in Brussels, which left at least 26 dead and 25 more injured.

The presidency released a statement via Facebook condemning the attacks that “targeted innocent lives” and expressing its solidarity with Belgium in the face of “these difficult times.”

In a written statement, the Foreign Ministry echoed the presidency’s statement, condemning the attack “in the strongest possible terms” and extended its condolences to the Belgian government and the victims’ families on behalf of Egypt’s government and people.

The Foreign Ministry spokesman also reaffirmed Egypt’s position that “terrorism does not discern between religion or race, and knows no boundaries,” stressing on the importance of international solidarity to face the “repulsive phenomenon.”

Al-Azhar also denounced the attacks, saying they “go against Islamic teachings and principles.” The institution also echoed the Foreign Ministry’s statement that international solidarity is integral to curb the phenomenon of terrorism worldwide.

The Belgian capital was rocked with a series of explosions early on Tuesday, with one attack taking place at a metro station and the other at the Zaventem Airport.

The Belgian government has asked everyone to stay put and has suspended all public transport services. No planes are currently flying into our out of Brussels.
