"We further extend our sincere congratulations and thanks to all those who contributed to the safe release of our soldiers – the Armed Forces, the Police, Intelligence, tribal elders, the people of Sinai and executive and popular leadership – who made sincere and successful efforts to rescue the soldiers and serve the interests of the country, its security and safety."
