Egypt’s Coptic Orthodox Church said on Saturday that it ordered all its churches across the country to ring their bells in solidarity with the victims that perished in Friday’s attack on the al-Rawda mosque in North Sinai’s al-Arish, according to state news service MENA.

Pope Tawadros II, along with all members of the Orthodox Church, extended their condolences to the victims’ families, a statement by the Church read, adding that it hopes for a speedy recovery of the injured.

Meanwhile, Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi ordered on Saturday the building of a memorial monument in the village where the mosque attack occurred to commemorate the victims of the brutal attack, private newspaper Al-Masry Al-Youm reported.

Sisi added that he has told the Egyptian Cabinet to compensate the families of the victims with LE 200.000 each.

Armed militants stormed the al-Rawda mosque after the conclusion of Friday prayers on November 24, killing 305, and injuring at least another 128.

Egypt’s army and police forces carried out air strikes and ground operations in surrounding areas of the al-Rawda mosque on Friday night, targeting militants believed to have been involved in the attack.
