Jumblatt cables Sisi, Twadros II offering condolences in wake of recent terrorist bombings

NNA – “Democratic Gathering” Head, MP Walid Jumblatt, cabled on Sunday Egyptian President, Abdel-Fattah Sisi, and Pope Twadros II of Alexandria, condemning the two church bombings in the cities of Tanta and Alexandria.

Jumblatt considered that “the repeated acts of terrorism fall within the context of a conspiracy aimed at striking stability and national unity in Egypt and nurturing the spirit of sectarian strife and division, in a bid to weaken the historic role of Egypt at the Arab and regional levels.”

“However, despite the size and magnitude of the challenges, we are confident that the Egyptian institutions and people can overcome this difficult and sensitive period, thwarting the aims of such criminal attacks,” asserted Jumblatt.

He concluded by expressing his sincere condolences to the Egyptian people and the families of the fallen victims.
