U.S. Embassy Condemns Sinai Attacks on Armed Forces, Police, and Civilians

Cairo – The U.S. Embassy in Cairo deplores the recent terrorist attacks on security forces, police, and civilians, including Christian Egyptians, in the Sinai Peninsula and elsewhere in Egypt.  These attacks once again demonstrate the depravity of the terrorists, in stark contrast to officers and civilians who are giving their lives to serve and protect fellow citizens.

The U.S. Embassy expresses its deep sympathies and condolences for those killed and injured by these recent attacks, and we wish a quick recovery for those injured.

The United States stands firmly with Egypt, and will continue to stand with Egypt and the Egyptian government and people as they battle terrorism.
