In a short statement published on his official Twitter account @AlsisiOfficial, Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi applauded the successful extradition on Tuesday night of Egypt's most wanted terrorist Hesham El-Ashmawy from Libya to Egypt.
“A salute and appreciation to Egypt’s brave men who have always acted as hawks against all those who thought that they can terrorize Egyptians,” El-Sisi said.
"These heroes have taken an oath to protect the homeland. A salute to those who carried the shield in the time of defence and the sword in the time to attack."
“The war on terrorism has not ended and will not end until the right of every martyr who died for the sake of the nation is restored. Egypt lives by its men,' El-Sisi added.
