President Abdel Fattah El Sisi on Tuesday mourned the death of former defense minister Mohamed Hussein Tantawy, who passed away earlier in the day.
“I have lost a father, a teacher and a human jealous for his homeland,” Sisi said in a tweet.
He condoled with the Egyptian people for the death of Tantawy, who taught him a lot about “dedication to the service of the homeland”.
Tantawy had always stood up for threats that faced Egypt during the hard times of its contemporary history, the president added.
