Ceyhun said, “Our expectation from the Austrian authorities is to evaluate the security camera footage of the incident, to identify the masked attackers, who seem to be two people, and to bring them to justice.” he said.

ATİB President Fatih Yılmaz also stated that an attack was carried out by breaking the windows on the entrance floor of the ATİB Central Mosque and said, “According to the images obtained from the camera records, the people in question are making the sign made by the sympathizers of the terrorist organization during the attack.
