CAIRO: President of the Arab Parliament Ahmed al-Jarwan condemned two terrorist attacks that targeted Egyptian soldiers on borders with Libya and Sudan and Tunisian troops on the Algerian borders.
“The death of 22 Egyptian soldiers in an attack by unidentified armed men is a terrorist, cowardly act which targets the security and stability of the region,” Jarwan said in a press statement circulated by the parliament’s headquarters in Cairo on Monday.
He also denounced the killing of 14 Tunisian troops while they were having a pre-dawn meal (Sohour).
“Such terrorist acts contradict all religions and human principles,” he said.
He offered condolences to the families of the victims in both countries.
