Mohammed Rashid Qabbani, Grand Mufti of Lebanon, warned both Shias and Sunnis against being dragged into the unrest in the country.
"Those behind the bomb attacks have a goal which is to create unrest between Shias and Sunnis," said Mufti concerning Thursday's terror attacks in Lebanese capital Beirut which killed 21 people and left around two hundred people wounded.
Describing the attack as "terrifying", Qabbani said it had nothing to do with Islam and Islamic values.
Attacks served Israel and the aims of dividing Arab countries, he said and warned that similar attacks would happen again unless the politicians tried to find solutions to the problems.
Thursday's bomb explosions took place in Ruweis region of southern Beirut where the majority of people are Shias. Attacks left 21 people dead while around 200 people were taken to hospitals.
