Egypt strongly condemned on Monday the terrorist attack on a mosque at a Yemeni army camp in Ma'arab province, which resulted in the killing and injuring of dozens of military personnel and civilians on Saturday.

In a statement issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Monday, Egypt extended its deepest condolences to the people and government of Yemen and the families of the victims, and wished the wounded a speedy recovery.

Further, the ministry voiced Egypt's categorical rejection of all forms of terrorism, violence, and extremism, expressing its solidarity with brotherly Yemen in its bereavement.

At least 100 people were killed or injured in the missile attack. The Yemeni government and armed forces have accused Iranian-backed Houthi militants of being behind the attack.

The Houthi militants have not claimed responsibility for Saturday’s attack.
