The Egyptian Organization for Human Rights (EOHR) terrorism observatory strongly condemns the bomb attack that targeted a police checkpoint in Al Haram district, which led to the death of 6 policemen, and the injuty of a few others. The attack took place on the 9th of December 2016
EOHR sees that the waves of terrorism that target the people of this nation present a blatant violation of the most sacred of human rights, that is the right to life which has been safeguarded a guranteed by International Human Rights treaties and conventions.
EOHR stresses that such acts of terrorism will only strengthen the nation’s will to combat terrorism, and that extremist groups will not knock Egypt of its march towards a long awaited democratic transition.
EOHR calls upon the ministry of interior to take all necessary measures to catch the assailants responsible for this crime, so that they can be held accountable for their crimes, and so that they would be an example for anyone who tries to terrorize innocent civilians.
Hafez Abu Seada the president of EOHR condemned the attack and said that terrorism is nothing but a representation of the terrorist’s intellectual bankruptcy, and inability to engage in politics through the legitimate channels. Abu Seada also stressed the importance of the unity of all segments of Egyptian society in the face of terrorism on both the governmental level, and the level of civil society and the people at large. Abu Seada added that Egypt’s govenment should undertake its duties to protect the country from terrorism. Abu Seada also rejected the notion that violence breeds violence because in this case the state is merley responding to acts of terrorism that violate the most basic principles of human rights.
