Egypt's Sisi gives military command three months to secure Sinai

 

Al Arabiya

 

Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi on Wednesday ordered his military command to use all 
force necessary to secure the Sinai peninsula within the next three months following a militant attack on a mosque that killed more than 300 people.
 
“It is your responsibility to secure and stabilize Sinai within the next three months,” Sisi said addressing his new chief of staff in a speech, without giving details on any operations. “You can use all brute force necessary.”
 
No group has claimed responsibility for Friday’s mosque attack, but Egyptian forces have been battling a stubborn ISIS affiliate in the North Sinai for more than three years and militants have killed hundreds of police and soldiers.
