Dear Prof. Ahmed:

Thank you for pointing out the oversight regarding the omitted publications. We agree with you that it is crucial to ensure that appropriate literature is cited and previous research is acknowledged in the field. Although we referred your study in our publication ( see reference 2), we regret that we did not include more references to your work.

Sincerely,

Hava Avraham
