The Jordan Times


AMMAN — HRH Prince Hassan released a statement on Sunday expressing his condolences after attacks targeted hotels and churches in Sri Lanka on Sunday. 
“I share the deep sense of grief following the heinous attacks in Sri Lanka and utter revulsion for the vile and calculated depravity of those who would attack worshippers yet again,” Prince Hassan said. 
The attackers targeted three churches and four hotels across the country on Easter Sunday leaving over 200 dead and 450 injured, according to Reuters.
“Regardless of whether these events occur in mosques, churches, synagogues or temples, near to us or far from home.”
“The continued and wanton targeting of congregations at prayer is an act of barbarity and must be an aberration to all people of good faith,” Prince Hassan stated.
“We must stand together, not divided by the binary labels of one faith or another but united in humanity itself; to provide protection and support for each other and ridding ourselves of the dominance of hatred and bigotry, thus forcing these acts of darkness into the light of justice,” Prince Hassan said the statement released by his office.  
“I send my deepest condolences to the people of Sri Lanka and all those who have been injured or lost loved ones in these outrages.”
