UAE Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan strongly condemned the deadly attack in a statement to UAE's WAM news agency, describing it as a “terrorist criminal act.”

He also, warned of sectarian conflict and called on the international community to combat “terrorist and extremist” groups.

Meanwhile, the Qatari Foreign Ministry said in a statement that “that criminal act goes against all moral and humanitarian values as well as all monotheistic religions and Islam’s tolerant principles,” according to the Qatar News Agency.

Morocco's Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemned the attack in a statement describing the incident as a “terrorist attack.”
