Jordan's lower house of parliament on Sunday condemned the explosion in front of a church in Egypt's northern city of Alexandria which killed 21 people and injured dozens.

In a letter sent to the Egyptian People's Assembly, the Jordanian lower house expressed "its strong condemnation of the heinous crime," stressing its support to Egypt in standing up to terrorism, the state-run Petra news agency reported.

The Lower House stressed that Jordan supports Egypt's efforts to preserve its security and unity among all segments and sects of its society.

Meanwhile, Jordan's Islamic Action Front (IAF) also condemned the attack, saying in a statement on Sunday that "targeting innocents is against human values and contradicts with the Arab and Islamic civilization. It only serves the enemies of the Ummah (Arab and Muslim nation) who seeks to harm unity and fuel conflicts among the Ummah."

The IAF, which is the political wing of the Muslim Brotherhood, called on the "rational Muslims and Christians to enjoy highest degrees of wisdom and responsibility," urging the ruling regimes to expose "those entities behind such actions."

The IAF said it does not rule out the possibility that the Mossad, the Israeli Intelligence, is behind these crimes.
