French President Macron, who went to the scene, made the comments after the review.
“France has once again been hit by a terrorist attack, ” Macron said, noting that the number of soldiers serving as part of the fight against terrorism across the country has been increased from 3 thousand to 7 thousand. This is the third time terror has struck the inhabitants of this city. I know the shock you’re feeling. We have been attacked because of our values, our sense of freedom and our freedom of faith in our country. We will never surrender. We will be in a position to protect all places of worship, especially churches,” he said.

Reacting to the French leader, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the president and AKP leader, said: “Macron needs a mental treatment. What else can be called a head of state who does not understand freedom of Faith, Freedom of faith, treats millions of people of different faiths living in his own country in this way, first of all, mental control” and called for a boycott of French goods.
