Saturday 23-March-2024


The Hamas Movement has condemned the terrorist attack that targeted civilians inside a concert complex in the Russian capital, Moscow, on Friday night.

“We condemn in the strongest terms the terrorist attack that targeted civilians in Moscow, leaving dozens dead or wounded,” Hamas said in a statement yesterday.

Hamas offered its sincerest condolences to the Russian leadership and people, and the families of the victims and wished a speedy recovery for the wounded.

Gunmen opened fire and detonated explosives at Moscow’s Crocus City Hall killing at least 60 people and injuring 145 in a terrorist attack claimed by the ISIL (ISIS) group.

At least five camouflage-clad gunmen with automatic weapons burst into the packed concert hall in the Russian capital’s western suburbs on Friday night as the audience was gathering to watch a local band, shooting into the crowd and setting off explosives that started a massive fire.

The Russian police said more than 60 people had been killed, while health officials said about 145 people were injured, and about 60 of them were in critical condition.
