No: 1, 1 January 2022, Press Release Regarding the Attack on a Muslim Cemetery in Germany

Republic Of Türkiye Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 01.01.2022

We have learned with sorrow that an attack was carried out on a Muslim cemetery in the city of Iserlohn, Germany.

The attack that took place on New Year's Eve is a new indicator of the sick Anti-Islamic mentality, which has recently been on the rise especially in Europe and has made even Muslim cemeteries a target.

We hope that the perpetrators of this heinous attack are identified, brought to justice and given the punishment they deserve.

Likewise, we wish that the necessary measures will be taken to prevent such incidents.

Atatürk
