“Syria voices its condolences to the families of the victims and affirms that the terrorist groups that commit these crimes against innocent people in the brotherly Arab Republic of Egypt are the same terrorist groups that target citizens in the Syrian Arab Republic under the support of the US, some Gulf states, Turkey and Israel,” the SANA news agency reported citing its source in the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry.
According to the source, Syria strongly condemned the deadly attacks.
