OIC Secretary-General Dr Yousuf Bin Ahmad Al Othaimeen expressed his condolences to the family of the deceased, and wished a speedy recovery for the injured.

He was quoted as reaffirming the solidarity of the organisation with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in confronting terrorism and extremism that is aiming to destabilising its security and stability.
