CAIRO – 8 May 2022: The United Nations, African Union, Arab League, and Muslim World League condemned Sunday the terror attack launched Saturday against a water lifting plant on the eastern bank of the Suez Canal in Sinai, killing 11 military men and injuring five.  


The United Nations Egypt tweeted extending its condolences on the passing of the soldiers, and wishing the injured a speedy recovery.



Chairperson of the African Union Commission Moussa Faki condemned the attack, stressing solidarity with the families of the martyrs, Egyptian chief of state, government, and people.



In a statement released by the Arab League, the organization stressed solidarity with Egypt in the face of terror attacks, and support to the efforts it deploys to maintain its stability and security. The Arab League also called for concerting efforts on the international scale to combat terrorism on all levels.  



The Muslim World League issued a statement to condole with Egypt, and assert its certitude that the attack would strengthen the country's determination to further its counterterrorism work.


President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi, commander-in-chief of the Egyptian Army, chaired Sunday the meeting of the Supreme Council of the Egyptian Armed Forces, following Saturday’s foiled terror attack.


Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi affirmed later on Saturday that treacherous terrorist attacks will not undermine the determination of people and the army to uproot terrorism.


“The loyal sons of the homeland are still responding to the call of the nation with full courage and sacrifice, continuing unique self-denial and a belief in the doctrine of safeguarding the homeland, which would not be shaken,” Sisi wrote in a Facebook post.


The president extended sincere condolences to the great Egyptian people, armed forces and the families of the martyrs, wishing the injured people a speedy recovery.


Many Arab countries, European Union, United States, United Nations, African Union, and the Arab League among others also condemned the attack on May 7-8.
