The Custodian of Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud has sent his condolences and sympathy to Egypt’s President Abdulfattah Al-Sisi following the two terrorist bombings that struck churches in the Egyptian cities of Tanta and Alexandria.
In his cable, the Monarch said he was deeply pained to receive the news of the killing and injuring of dozens of innocent citizens. He expressed in the strongest terms his denunciation and condemnation of the two sinful criminal terrorist acts, confirming to the President that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia stands alongside the Arab Republic of Egypt and its brotherly people against all those who attempt to threaten its security and stability.
In his own name and on behalf of the people and government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the Monarch sent his sincere condolences and sympathy to the President, the families of the victims and the Egyptian people, wishing the injured a quick recovery and the Egyptian President and people safety against any harm.
The Council of Senior Muslim Scholars also released the following statement following the horrific terrorist attack in Egypt.
“The bombings that targeted two churches in Egypt are criminal acts and forbidden by Islamic law. Muslims are in agreement that these acts are a violation to the security, stability and safety of people. A Muslim who believes in God and the Last Day will not commit such crimes. These crimes are committed by those who deviate from their faith. These acts are forbidden in Islam for they are acts of treachery, betrayal, sin and aggression.”
