On Monday, Egypt strongly condemned the recent terrorist attacks that targeted places of worship and a police station in Dagestan, Russia.

Ambassador Ahmed Abu Zeid, the official spokesperson for the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, expressed Egypt's firm stance against all forms of violence and terrorism. He took to his official account on the social media platform X, stating: "Egypt unequivocally rejects all forms of violence and terrorism. We stand in solidarity with our friend, Russia, and extend our condolences to the families of the victims, wishing a speedy recovery for the injured."

Dagestan, a republic in the North Caucasus region of Russia, has long been plagued by insurgency and violence, predominantly driven by Islamist militants. The region has seen numerous attacks targeting security forces, government officials, and civilians, often claimed by extremist groups.

The latest incidents involved coordinated attacks on several locations, including places of worship and a police station, resulting in multiple casualties. These acts of violence come amidst ongoing efforts by Russian authorities to stabilize the region and combat terrorism.
