"Four Palestinians were killed, six were injured, while the track of three others has been lost in the wake of the terrorist attack in New Zealand," the ministry said in a statement.
On Friday, local media reported, citing Palestinian Ambassador to Australia and New Zealand Izzat Abdulhadi, that at least one Palestinian had been killed and several others had been injured as a result of the attack in New Zealand's eastern city of Christchurch. According to New Zealand's authorities, many of those affected by the violent attack are members of local migrant communities.
A total of three people were detained in the wake of the attack, including the 28-year-old suspected shooter, Australian national Brenton Harrison Tarrant, who had explained his motives by his anti-Muslim and anti-migrant views in a manifesto published before the attack.
Earlier on Saturday, a court in New Zealand ruled to remand the suspected shooter in custody until April 5, while the police said they expected further charges to be brought against him.
