Al Rawdah sports centre- North Sinai - FILE
CAIRO – 29 December 2017: The Director of the Youth and Sports Directorate in North Sinai, Hassan Abdel Wahab, said that there is a LE 7.5 million plan to develop Al- Rawdah Youth Centre in Bir el-Abed city, North Sinai.
The development project will include removing the current building and installing a new one with activity halls, which will cost LE 3.5 million, a kids garden costing LE 2 million and a football field with the remaining LE 1.5 million.
Abdel Wahab added that the execution of the plan will begin in a few days and will finish as quickly as possible, as the city’s youth urgently need a sport facility.
At least 311 people were killed and 121 injured when unidentified militants attacked al-Rawdah mosque during Friday prayers in the North Sinai governorate, setting off explosives and showering worshippers with gunfire last November.
Rawda village is located on the international road between Al-Arish with Bi’r Al-Abd. The village was a refuge for a large number of families who fled Sheikh Zuweid city following several terrorist attacks that hit the area.
