Turkey condemned terror attacks Saturday in Burkina Faso and Somalia.

The Turkish Foreign Ministry through a statement said that,

“We are saddened by the news that many people lost their lives and were injured in a terrorist attack against a livestock market place in Namoungou village, in the eastern part of Burkina Faso, on 7 August 2020.

It further added that “We condemn this heinous terrorist attack. We extend our sincere condolences to the brotherly people and Government of Burkina Faso and wish a speedy recovery to the injured,”

In Somalia, a suicide attack using a bomb-laden vehicle killed eight people.

“We received the news with deep sorrow that 8 people lost their lives and many were injured as a result of a suicide attack with a bomb-laden vehicle following a mortar fire to the base of ‪12 April Brigade in Mogadishu, Somalia,” the ministry said.

Turkey has strong historical ties with Somalia on the principle of “win-win” relations, including more than 150 development aid projects carried out by the Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency since 2011.
