Prince Charles shows his support to Saudi Arabia

Prince Charles has stepped out in support for Saudi Arabia after the terrorist attack in the Madinah.

He wrote a letter to Madinah Governor Prince Faisal bin Salman, Prince of Wales Charles sharing his sympathies for the attack on the Prophet’s Mosque in Madinah.

The Prince of Wales said: “I was so deeply distressed to learn of appalling atrocity at Madinah and wanted to send Your Royal Highness a message straight away to express my most heartfelt sympathy.

“This murderous attack on one of Islam’s most holy sites is horrifying beyond measure. My thoughts and prayers are very much with you and your dear father, Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman, and country as you lead the emergency response against this attack.”

Prince Faisal bin Salman replied to Prince Charles’ letter writing:  “We do appreciate your sincere words in these difficult situations and we will convey them honestly to Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdul Aziz, may Allah protect him.”

Adding on that “The Islamic world was united in condemning the criminal attack which has only contributed to strengthening our unity and solidarity in the fight against extremism among our peoples.

“We work hand in hand to stop the security threat posed by those extremists to the security and stability of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the world, which hit the families of the innocent victims with deep sorrow and pain,”

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Nayef, Deputy Premier and Minister of Interior visited those injured from the blast in the hospital. While on his visit he said: “I know confronting terror operations is not simple. The simple repercussions you feel following the explosion will go away. I’ve been through this experience before and I (understand) how you feel”.

The suicide bomber attacked the security services when they went to a car park adjacent to the Prophet Mosque where security forces parked.
