Press Release Regarding The Killing Of Egyptian Citizens In Libya By Deash , 16.02.2015

No: 60, 16 February 2015

We vehemently condemn the brutal killing of innocent Egyptian citizens who had been abducted earlier in Libya by DEASH terrorist organization. We convey our condolences to the families of the victims and to the Egyptian people.

This incident has demonstrated once again the importance of the dialogue process and national reconciliation in brotherly Libya. The establishment of national reconciliation and the formation of a national unity government through concrete contributions to the dialogue process by all Libyans, who stand for a peaceful, democratic and stable Libya, will constitute the proper response to terrorism.
