Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the United Arab Emirates Armed Forces Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al-Nahyan donated EGP 50 million to fund the restoration works of the National Cancer Institute.

On midnight Monday, the institute’s building was damaged by an explosion that killed 20 and injured 47, with many victims still in critical condition as per the Ministry of Health.

The Ministry of Interior stated that Hasm, a terrorist group, was behind the attack.

Hasm has been active in the country since 2016, and has previously claimed responsibility for an assassination attempt on the former Grand Mufti of Egypt Ali Gomaa and an attack on a checkpoint on a main road near the Giza pyramid complex on the outskirts of Cairo, which killed six police officer.

Victims from the NCI were transferred to other hospitals due to the severe conditions caused by the explosion.

Moreover, Egyptian Prime Minister Mostafa has tasked Arab Contractors, a well-known construction company, with starting repairs of the building immediately.

The Egyptian government qualifies Hasm as affiliated to the now-banned Muslim Brotherhood; however, the MB has staunchly rejected any association to terrorist group or violent group activity.
