He added, “As we extend our deepest condolences and sincere condolences to the families of the honorable martyrs, and we beseech God Almighty to bless the wounded with a speedy recovery, calling on the competent security agencies to intensify their efforts and exert more effort in order to preserve security and thwart the plans of the enemies that lie in wait for these people, who suffer from various aspects, and there is no strength or power except in God Almighty, the Great.”
