The State Information Service (SIS) condemns the terrorist attack that occurred in the early hours on Tuesday 24/12/2013, at Daqahliya Security Directorate, which resulted in dozens of casualties; deceased and injured. SIS offers its sincerest condolences to the martyrs' families and prays for a quick recovery for the injured.
SIS Chairman Ambassador Amgad Abdel Ghaffar denounced the attack and described it as a criminal act that patently proves that the Egyptian State is fighting a virtuous war to eradicate violence and terrorism committed against the Egyptian people since the June 30th Revolution.
Ambassador Abdel Ghaffar notes that this attack proves that the Egyptian people were right when they revolted and that they are moving forward with the roadmap launched with the issuing of the new draft constitution in spite of terrorism and its perpetrators, adding that the Egyptian people will achieve their aspirations and ambitions towards freedom, democracy, and social justice.
SIS Chairman urges foreign media representatives in Egypt and abroad to comprehend the undeniable truth, realize the magnitude of terrorism committed against the Egyptian State, and the big responsibility it shoulders in uprooting terrorism, which the free world; its states, and media outlets, should clearly condemn.
Abdel Ghaffar, further, urges foreign media representatives to positively and effectively contribute in mobilizing international media support for Egypt in its fight against terrorism as it proceeds towards freedom and democracy and regains its safety and security.
