Al-Shamali said that they contacted the family of Mrs. Laila and knew that she is fine, but she is currently hospitalized in order to conduct tests and check on her health condition.
Al-Shamali added that the SOC would follow up on the case with the official Turkish authorities so that the perpetrator would be held accountable.
