The Egyptian Organization of Human Rights calls the international community to stand in solidarity against terrorism

 

The Egyptian Organization of Human Rights declares its condemnation of the terrorist attack on Paris on Friday November 13th, 2015. This attack is considered one of the most violent in the history of France as it left hundreds of dead and injured civilians. The bombing started near a Parisian restaurant, causing seism in the international stadium meanwhile a soccer game between the French and German teams where the French president was present. Furthermore, civilians were taken hostage at Bataclan Theatre, a hundred of which died, leading President Hollande to declare a state of emergency.

As France took part in the international combat against ISIS by launching massive anti-ISIS airstrikes in Syria, the November 17th terrorist attack is not the only one France witnesses in 2015; however it remains the most violent. At the beginning of this year, the world attested another armed attack on the French newspaper Charlie Hebdo in Paris where 12 editors were murdered and 11 others were injured. Other unfortunate events in France encompass gun shootings in a kosher supermarket where two people were also killed, and hostages were seized.

The Egyptian Organization of Human Rights views these terrorist attacks as an attack on all of humanity as well as a violation of the most basic, most sacred human right of all: the right to live. We urge the international community to stand in solidarity and cooperation against this scowling terrorism.

We also urge the United Nations to organize efforts amongst major states to combat terrorism and protect all people from this impendent danger as terrorism and extremism threaten all races and ethnicities.

We pay our condolences and best regards to the people of France and once again call all states to conjoin their security forces and political power in the face of terrorism.
