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.
