CAIRO- 5 February 2022: The ِEgyptian Embassy in Morocco expressed its sincere wishes and prayers for the rescue of the five-year-old child, Rayan, who has been trapped in a 32-meter-deep well for five days.
In a statement published by the embassy on Friday, the diplomatic mission wished Rayan a safe return to his family.
Rayan fell in the well on Tuesday evening, since then the Moroccan authorities are working around the clock to reach the boy. They manage to provide him with water and oxygen.
Moroccan online newspaper Hespress reported that the rescue team is only two meters away from the boy, but a small rock impedes their access to him. Quoting an anonymous official, the newspaper added that this rock caused a delay in the process of reaching the child and it would take three hours to demolish it.
People in the Arab World on social media platforms created a hashtag “#Save_Rayan” praying to Allah to save him.
