"The missions also come as an implementation of the directions of the president to present gifts to the families of the martyrs and the injured, who have given their precious lives and blood to fulfil their national duty to defend the soil of their dear homeland and the security of its people," the ministry said.
From their side, the families of the killed and the injured policemen have expressed their pride and appreciation to the president for "his constant keenness to care for them, provide them with full support, and his eagerness to communicate with them on all occasions."
