Spain Condemns Terrorist Attack at Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport

MADRID – Spain’s King, government officials and minority groups expressed solidarity with Turkey after terror attacks in Istanbul killed 41 and injured 239.

King Felipe VI offered the Turkish people Spain’s “deep and heartfelt solidarity” on Wednesday, adding that people must come together to eradicate terrorism and to offer full support to the victims and their families.

On Tuesday evening, three suicide bombers entered Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport where, according to Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim, they opened fire on crowds of people before detonating suicide bombs, killing 41 people and leaving scores injured.

“Terrorism deserves nothing but contempt and disgust,” Felipe VI said during his opening speech at the Fourth International Congress of the Architecture and Society Foundation.

The Spanish Government also “strongly condemned” the attack and reassured the public that there were no Spanish citizens among the dead.

President of the Islamic Commission of Spain (CIE) Riay Tatary said that “Spanish Muslims express their condolences to the families of the victims and wish full recovery for those injured.”

Madrid Mayor, Manuela Carmena, presided over a minute of silence in front of Cibeles Palace city hall in the center of Madrid.

Two scheduled flights from Ataturk to Malaga were canceled Wednesday.

President of the Spanish Confederation for Travel Agencies (CAEV) Rafael Gallego, said it was too soon to estimate the full impact of the attack on scheduled flights, but that there could be further cancellations in coming days.
