Dear Acting Prime Minister,

 

I was shocked and greatly dismayed by the deadly gun and bomb attack on Al-Rawdah mosque in the North Sinai city of Bir Al-Abed on 24 November 2017.

Singapore strongly condemns this cowardly assault on peaceful worshippers during Friday prayers.  Egypt has long been steadfast and resolute in the face of terror and violence.  I am confident that Egypt and her people will overcome this attack with resilience and strength.

Singapore stands united with Egypt in this difficult time and our thoughts and prayers are with the bereaved families and victims in this time of national mourning.

 

Yours sincerely,


 

 

His Excellency Mostafa Madbouly

Acting Prime Minister
