The Bishops’ Conference of Spain has condemned the terrorist attack attributed to the Basque separatist group ETA, which took place Monday morning in the town of Santona, claiming the life of one person and leaving 10 others injured. The bishops also expressed their closeness and solidarity with the victims and their family members.
In their statement, the bishops explained that the attack on a military installation in the town of Santona was a “brutal terrorist act” by the Basque separatist group, which also carried out another attack in the Basque region this past weekend, wounding 10 other people.
The bishops reiterated their condemnation of terrorism as a “perverse reality in itself that cannot be justified by appealing to other social ills, real or imagined.” They called terrorism a “structure of sin” that generates “new and serious evils.”
They sent their condolences to the family members of the solider who was killed and to the families of the wounded.
