The Muslim World League (MWL) condemned on Thursday the terrorist attack that targeted a security point in Egypt's northern Sinai that left several Egyptian soldiers dead and injured.

MWL Secretary-General and Chairman of the Association of Muslim Scholars, Sheikh Dr. Mohammed bin Abdulkarim Al-Issa, slammed the heinous criminal attack, which underscores "the urgent need to continue the joint international effort to defeat extremism and terrorism."

He stated that these "treacherous attacks will only increase Egypt's determination to confront and eradicate terrorism."

On behalf of the MWL and its global councils, bodies and institutions, Al-Issa stressed "full solidarity with Egypt in its war against terrorism and anything that would undermine or threaten its security and stability."

He offered his condolences to the families of the victims, and the Egyptian leadership, government and people.
