Also several armed opposition groups expressed their solidarity with the French people and condemned the "heinous acts" on civilians.

Khartoum’s foreign ministry spokesperson Ali al-Sadiq said in a written statement that his country sends its condolences to the government and people of France and the families and relatives of the victims.

Al-Sadiq also underscored Sudan’s full solidarity with France and with the international community in supporting efforts exerted to combat violence and fundamentalism that runs against all norms and all religions and against all human values, as the traitorous hands were now targeting innocent people and spreading blind destruction around the world.

The Islamic State group (ISIS) has claimed responsibility for the bloody attack that hit Paris’s most popular night-spots, including a sold-out concert hall, at restaurants and bars and outside France’s national stadium.

Also, the diplomat confirmed that the Sudanese community in France is well and no casualties were recorded among them.

The coordinated terror attacks in the French capital targeted six sites where Parisians gather on Friday evening. French authorities said that some 129 were killed. The deadliest attack was at the Bataclan, a concert hall where 82 people died.

In separate statements extended to Sudan Tribune, the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) and Sudan Liberation Movement of Minni Minnawi (SLM-MM) condemned the mass terror attack and expressed their condolence to the families of victims, the French people and government.

"The cult of terror belongs to itself only, and should not be associated with a creed or a race or a nation. They should not be tolerated or provided shelter under any pretext or excuse," said JEM leader Gibril Ibrahim.

He further pointed that the perpetrators of these terrorists are "bent to destroy our lives and civilization unless we stand united in their face with absolute resolve".

From his part, Minni Minnawi, condemned the "killing of innocent people in the name of Islam" and called for a firm international response against terrorism.

"We also warn that terrorism has become a network funded by some regimes and we hope the world takes this fact seriously to face these regimes," Minnawi further said.

Media reports disclosed that Egyptian and Syrian passports have been found near the bodies of one of the attackers in different sites, hinting to the involvement of foreign nationals in the attacks, or at least that they were prepared outside the French territory. Only one French was identified among the attackers.

In an online statement released Saturday, Daesh claimed responsibility for Paris attacks and said that the operation was conducted by eight militants.

The terror group also said this attack was in response to airstrikes agonist its militants in Syria and Iraq. The statement further warned that France would remain one of its top targets.

The eight attackers - seven blew themselves up and one was shot by police - are the first to ever carry out suicide bombings on French soil.

The French president François Hollande on Saturday said his country is in war against the terrorist group, adding that his government was considering further actions against Daesh.
