RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas voiced his support and solidarity on Saturday with the citizens of Sweden following an attack in Stockholm that left four people dead and several others injured on Friday. 

Abbas sent a telegram to the Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven confirming that Palestinians stand against “terrorism” anywhere and by anyone, before expressing his condolences for the deaths of those killed in the attack and wishing a hasty recovery for the injured. 

The Swedish police announced on Friday that the driver of a stolen lorry truck rammed into pedestrians at a busy shopping center and then crashed into a department store, killing four and injuring at least 15 others. Police later said they found a bag of undetonated homemade explosives in the lorry, while a man suspected of being the driver of the truck was arrested by Swedish police.
