The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece sent the following letter to the Turkish ambassador in Greece, Mr. Yaşar Halit Çevik, regarding the terrorist attack in Istanbul; the letter was also communicated to the Jewish Community of Turkey:
Dear Mr. Ambassador,
The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece firmly condemns the terrorist attack that took place in a nightclub in the center of Istanbul, with at least 39 people killed and 69 wounded, 15 foreigners among them, in the first hours of the New Year 2017.
The choice of both the place and time of the attack clearly demonstrates the profound hatred and paranoia of the ISIS terrorists who claimed responsibility for the attack.
We express our deepest condolences to the families of all the victims and the full support and solidarity of the Greek Jewry to the Turkish people who are struck once again by terrorism.
