Condolences of Czech Prime minister on the attack in the Sinai Peninsula

Your Excellency,

I was deeply shocked by the news of the brutal attack at the mosque of Al-Rawda on Sinai Peninsula which claimed lives of more than three hundred innocent people and left many wounded.

I condemn this cowardly, exceptionally cruel and cold-blooded act of violence targeting defenceless worshippers including the most innocent ones – the children. It was yet another hideous demonstration of those who cannot express themselves by other means but destruction and spreading fear. At this tragic moment, my thoughts of solidarity and compassion go to the Egyptian people and to those who lost their loved ones. I also wish a speedy recovery to the wounded.

Your Excellency, please accept my deepest condolences on behalf of myself as well as the Government of the Czech Republic.

Respectfully yours,

Bohuslav Sobotka
Prime Minister of the Czech Republic
