Lebanon's outgoing Prime Minister Najib Mikati said Friday's twin bombings targeting two mosques in the city of Tripoli are aimed at creating disorder in the country and fomenting chaos among people.
Two simultaneous bomb attacks on Tripoli's Al-Taqwa and Al-Salam Mosques during Friday prayers killed at least 32 people and wounded 352 others, according to Lebanese Health Ministry.
Issuing a written statement, Mikati said "Tripoli and the people of Tripoli will prove that they are stronger than the conspiracy and they will not let the perpetrators of the unrest weaken their faith to God and patriotism.
"They will soon dress their wounds no matter how deep they are. We support our brothers and sisters in Tripoli and give our word to stand by them always especially in hard times."
The twin explosions rocked Tripoli's Al-Zahiriya and the Al-Mina neighborhoods, areas mostly inhabited by the country's Sunnis.Güncelleme Tarihi: 23 Ağustos 2013, 17:44
