Algeria calls for int'l counter-terrorism efforts after Istanbul tragedy

Algeria on Wednesday strongly condemned the suicide attacks that targeted Istanbul’s Ataturk airport on Tuesday night, urging the international community to further combine global counter-terrorism efforts.
“We strongly condemn the triple terrorist attacks which hit Istanbul’s Ataturk airport and we offer condolences to the victims’ families,” APS news agency quoted Abdelaziz Benali Cherif, spokesman for the Algerian Foreign Ministry, as saying.
“Algeria expresses its solidarity with the people and government of Turkey after this despicable attack,” he said.
“The terrorist escalation in Turkey and elsewhere in the world urges once again the international community to further combining their actions against terrorism, which poses serious threat to world’s peace and stability,” the diplomat said.
Istanbul’s main international airport was hit by a triple suicide bombing on Tuesday night, which left 41 people killed and more than 200 injured.
Algerian Foreign Ministry said a 22-year-old Algerian national was injured in the bombings. He has been admitted in Bagcilar Hospital in Istanbul to have medical treatments.
