Turkey strongly condemned Friday the attack on its embassy in Somali capital Mogadishu that injured three construction workers.

The injured persons from Wednesday night’s attack by unidentified assailants were transported to Turkish capital Ankara by air ambulance Friday.

Somali authorities have launched an investigation into the attack, during which rocket launchers were fired at the embassy, which is currently under construction. 

Turkey’s ambassador to Somalia Kani Torun said no organization has been linked to the attack.

Turkey will continue supporting Somalia to contribute to peace and welfare in the country following the attacks, the Turkish Foreign Ministry said in its written statement
