Al-Issa added that the two recent attacks in the British capital show the depth of brutality that is carried out by extremist terrorist groups.
Radical terrorists aim to target the UK’s excellence as a model of tolerance and human coexistence, he said, adding that these groups’ ideology includes exporting their misery and despair as well as attacking the values of this civilized state in order to create a civilizational and cultural conflict.
