"I want to express my strongest and most decisive words of condemnation in regard with the heinous criminal attack that occurred in the Notre-Dame basilica in French Nice. Terrorism has no religion. All Muslims should condemn this crime, which is not related to Islam nor to the beloved prophet, on the blessed memory day of his birth," Hariri wrote on Twitter.
