Witnesses confirmed that the attack occurred Monday, during the dawn prayer inside the mosque, while the escapees fled.
The incident did not cause casualties, but it caused panic among the worshipers, with no one claiming responsibility for the attack.
It is worth mentioning that the Spanish police began the investigation to find out the circumstances of the attack.
