The European Jewish Congress on Wednesday condemned the triple suicide attack that killed 36 people at Istanbul's Ataturk Airport on Tuesday night.

“This is another attack by radical Islamist terrorists on innocent civilians demonstrating the true barbarity of a murderous ideology which respects no borders and no morality,” EJC President Moshe Kantor said.

“We need a strong unified and global response to this latest attack which follows Paris, Brussels, Tel Aviv, Orlando and Mogadishu, among others, to rid us of this threat,” he added.

"These murderers wish to bring our way of life to its heels, but they will not succeed. The European Jewish community stands with the people of Turkey in this difficult time and we send our condolences to those who have lost loved ones and wishes of a speedy recovery to the injured."
