The United States strongly condemns Saturday’s terrorist attack in Egypt’s western desert near al-Farafra, which killed more than 20 Egyptian soldiers. We extend our condolences to the families of the victims, and hope for the quick and full recovery of the wounded. A prosperous and dynamic Egypt requires an environment of security and stability, and the United States continues to support the Egyptian Government’s efforts to counter the threat of terrorism in Egypt as part of our commitment to the strategic partnership between our two countries.
