Egypt’s President Gives Army 3 Months to Restore Security in Sinai

CAIRO – Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi gave on Wednesday the country’s security forces three months to end militant attacks and restore calm in Sinai Peninsula after last week’s deadly attack there that killed over 300 people.

During his speech at a ceremony celebrating the Prophet Muhammad’s birth, al-Sisi ordered Army Chief of Staff Mohamed Farid Hegazi as well as the Ministry of Interior and the police forces to bring back peace to Sinai.

“You, Lt. Gen. Mohamed Farid Hegazi, are responsible, within three months, to restore security and stability in Sinai,” al-Sisi said, addressing Hegazi.

“Military and police forces are determined to continue the war against terrorism until it is uprooted, and we are confident that we will be, God willing, victorious,” al-Sisi added.

Al-Sisi ordered the army to use all force necessary to secure Sinai, saying that “the lives of our martyrs will not be lost in vain.”

On Friday, militants launched an attack against the al-Rawdah mosque in Bir al-Abd – located 40 kilometers (25 miles) west of the North Sinai capital of al-Arish – killing 305 people, including 27 children, and wounding another 128 people.

No terror group has so far claimed responsibility for the attack.
