In his message, President Tebboune paid tribute to the “persons who died of the Coronavirus pandemic which imposes on us to live those blessed days in the same conditions as Eid al Fitr.”
“Thousands of Algerians, like all the Muslims around the world have been deprived from accomplishing, this year, the hajj rituals and prayers in mosques as they are maintained closed,” he said.
The President has also paid a glowing tribute to “healthcare workers and all the volunteers who support them.”
President Tebboune added that he would have liked so much to “inaugurate the Great Mosque of Algiers and accomplish, amongst the faithful, the Eid al Adha prayers, but the current conditions do not allow it.”
”I remain convinced that together we are capable of overcoming such ordeal, thanks to the determination of our people, genius of its children and to the multiple capacities and potentialities of our country” President concluded.
