Azhar Grand Imam Dr. Ahmed El Tayyeb lauded efforts and sacrifices of the Armed Forces and the police in their fight against terrorism.
In a statement on Friday 27/09/2019, Tayyeb mourned the martyrs of the Armed Forces, who were killed in raids against terror hotbeds earlier in the day.
Islam and all heavenly religions have nothing to do with such terrorist groups that deliberately aim to defame Islam's image, the Grand Imam said.
All the seized weapons, shown in the Armed Forces' latest video, should encourage all Egyptians to cooperate with their army and national institutions to face such threat, he added.
Al-Azhar anew its support to the Egyptian leadership, the Armed Forces and police in their fight against terrorism.
It offered condolences to the martyrs' families, the Egyptian people and President Abdel Fattah El Sisi over the death of the soldiers.
It also wished recovery for the injured.MENA
