This painful incident is heartbreaking, and it happened in your brotherly country, which always supported Lebanon and its people”.
As I share with you with great pain, I offer you, personally, and to the brotherly Egyptian people, my warmest condolences, asking God to dwell in the victims in his spaciousness and soothe the suffering of the wounded, and to help you overcome the pain of this great tragedy.
