TEHRAN (IQNA) – The Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement denounced a recent attack against Egypt’s military personnel and underscored the need to counter the destructive Takfiri ideology.

In a statement released on Sunday, Hezbollah also expressed solidarity with the Egyptian nation, Al-Ahed News reported.

It said what Takfiri terrorist groups do is aimed at undermining Egypt’s stability and security and diverting attention from the Zionist regime’s terrorism in Palestine.

Hezbollah reiterated its stance on the necessity to combat Takfiri ideology and isolate Takfiri groups.

It added that Muslim scholars should play a role in this regard and that measures should be taken all over the Muslim world for countering Takfiri terrorism.

At least 11 Egyptian troops were killed and five others hurt on Saturday when militants attacked a water pumping station east of the Suez Canal

An Egyptian officer was also killed in the attack in an isolated area of the northern Sinai Peninsula, an army spokesman said.

Five security personnel were also injured in the attack. “The terrorist elements are being chased and besieged in one of the isolated areas in Sinai,” the spokesman added in a statement on Saturday.

The military gave no further details or the attack’s precise location, but two northern Sinai residents told Associated Press the attack took place in the town of Qantara in the province of Ismailia, which stretches eastwards from the Suez Canal.

No group claimed responsibility for Saturday’s ambush, one of the deadliest attacks against Egyptian security forces in recent years.

Last week, suspected fighters blew up a natural gas pipeline in northern Sinai’s town of Bir al-Abd, causing a fire but no casualties.
