OTTAWA – Conservative Party Foreign Affairs critic, Tony Clement, strongly condemns the recent terror attacks in Saudi Arabia and Iraq at the close of the holy month of Ramadan and in the lead-up to the celebration of Eid. On Monday, suicide bombers launched attacks in Medina, Qatif and Jeddah killing multiple people. The violence erupted as Saudis prepared to break their Ramadan fast at the end of the holy month. The attack in Medina took place outside the Prophet`s tomb, one of the most holy sites in the region. One day earlier, 175 people were killed by bombs set off in the Karada neighbourhood of Baghdad by Islamic State terrorists. Clement issued the following statement on behalf of the Conservative caucus: “These attacks mark the most deadly in the region in some time, and we join with the government in condemning them and those responsible for this senseless act of terrorism and loss of innocent lives. It is a reminder that we must remain vigilant against those who want to destroy our way of life and have no respect for freedom of religion. We continue to urge the government to stand with our allies, and step up our efforts to combat ISIS.”
