Turkey Wednesday condemned a deadly terrorist attack in Burkina Faso.

“We are saddened by the terrorist attack that took place around the town of Arbinda in northern Burkina Faso, claiming many lives and leaving several people injured,” said the Foreign Ministry in a statement.

The ministry condemned the “heinous attack” and offered condolences to the people and government of the country.

“We wish Allah’s mercy upon those who lost their lives and speedy recovery to the wounded,” it added.

At least 19 people killed and 13 others wounded in the attack on late Sunday.

Burkina Faso has been threatened by terrorist attacks since 2015.

On Dec. 27, a terrorist attack on security forces in Sourou State in Northwestern Burkina Faso left 10 gendarmeries dead.

Following the incident, a state of emergency was declared in seven of the country’s 13 administrative regions./aa
