CAIRO – 29 November 2017: One of Al-Rawdah Mosque terrorist attack's injured was announced dead Wednesday, raising the death toll to 311.
In an official statement, North Sinai Health Affairs Directorate said that Abdul Rahman Mousa Salman died, affected by his wounds, in Arish Hospital where he was receiving treatment.
On November 25, the Attorney General issued a statement saying that a notification was received from the North Sinai Security Directorate that the worshipers during Friday prayers found around 25 to 30 armed terrorists standing in front of the Al-Rawdah Mosque doors and opened fire on them, after detonating a bomb.
The terrorists arrived in five SUVs and set fire in seven cars that belonged to the worshipers.
"A group of prosecutors headed to Ismailia General Hospital, where the victims of the terror attack have been receiving treatment to question them. The terrorist elements were dressed in military uniforms, wearing faded trousers and black T-shirts," the victims said.
In a TV statement, President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi strongly condemned the abhorrent terrorist attack that took place Friday November 24, and mourned the victims while extending his condolences to their families.
He added that Egypt will respond to this attack in “brute force against that small band of extremist terrorists.”
