CAIRO – 30 April 2022: Egypt condemned on Saturday the terrorist explosion at a mosque in the Afghan capital of Kabul, killing and injures scores of innocent people.

“Egypt extends its sincere condolences to Afghanistan and the families of the victims of these brutal terrorist operations,” the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement.

The ministry also wished a speedy recovery for the injured people during the attack.

“Egypt also reaffirms the importance of concerted efforts to combat all forms and manifestations of the phenomenon of terrorism, violence, and extremism,” the statement added.

A powerful explosion at the Khalifa Sahib Mosque in the Afghan capital claimed the lives of over 50 worshippers after Friday prayers, the mosque’s head was cited by Reuters as saying.

Similar blasts over recent weeks have claimed the lives of scores of Aghan civilians, with the Islamic State (IS) claiming responsibility for some of the attacks.

The latest attack comes as part of a series of terrorist attacks carried out during the holy month of Ramadan and ahead of the blessed holiday of Eid Al-Fitr, which falls this year early in May.
