The National Council for Human Rights, NCHR, chaired by Mohamed Fayek, has strongly condemned the terrorist attack on Christ Church in New Zealand, which resulted in the killing and injury of dozens of civilians and innocent victims.

The NCHR President has stressed that targeting places of worship contradicts with all human, religious values, ethical principles, all religions, and International Conventions, including International Humanitarian Law Conventions.

The NCHR highlighted that terrorism requires the cooperation between all international players and coordination on all fronts to combat all forms of terrorism with their different sources, noting that terrorist activities are aimed at threatening the security and stability of the world.

The NCHR presented its condolences to the families of the victims and wished the injured a speedy recovery.
