CAIRO – 26 November 2017: Mohammed bin Abdullah al-Zulfa, a member of the Consultative Assembly of Saudi Arabia, blamed on Saturday Qatar, Iran and Turkey for the attack on Arish mosque and the happenings in Libya and Palestine.
“The murderers are extreme groups funded by Qatar with an Iranian will and Turkish support,” Zulfa said, according to Zahwa Press.
A number of militants stormed Rawdah Mosque in west Arish City during Friday prayers, according to eyewitnesses, and detonated an explosive device.
Egyptian Prosecutor General Nabil Sadeq announced Saturday that the death toll of the Arish attack rose to 305.
In tribute to the victims of the attack, Kuwait City's landmark Kuwait Towers and Canada’s CN tower are seen illuminated in the colors of the Egyptian national flag, while the Eiffel Tower in Paris dimmed its lights.
In a Friday TV statement, President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi stressed that justice will be served against everyone who participated, contributed, supported, funded or incited this attack on worshipers.
