Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi performed Eid Al-Fitr prayers at the Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi Mosque on Wednesday.

The president then headed to Al-Manara International Conferences Centre in Cairo's Fifth Settlement suburb to celebrate Eid Al-Fitr with the children of army and police personnel who were killed on duty.

El-Sisi accompanied the children to a play area that was set up for kids during the Eid celebration. 

He also shook hands with a number of actors taking part in the event, including Mohamed Heneidi, Ahmed Fahmy and Karim Abdel-Aziz. 

A troupe from the Galhoum Gymnastics Academy performed a show during the celebration, and pop star Tamer Hosny participated in the event and sang a number of children’s and national songs. 

This is the second consecutive year for El-Sisi to celebrate Eid with the children of martyrs.

Speaker of the House of Representatives Ali Abdel-Aal, Prime Minister Moustafa Madbouly, Defence Minister Mohamed Zaki and Interior Minister Mahmoud Tawfiq also attended the celebration.
