Egypt Announces Major Military Op against Daseh in Sinai, Nile Delta
Local Editor

The Egyptian army announced on Friday it had launched a major operation in the Nile Delta and the northern Sinai Peninsula, heart of a persistent Daesh [Arabic Acronym for the terrorist "ISIS"/"ISIL"] group insurgency.


"Law enforcement forces began this morning implementing the comprehensive confrontation against the terrorist and criminal elements and organizations in northern and central Sinai," an army spokesman said in a televised statement.

Police and troops have been put on "maximum alert" for the duration of the operation, the statement added.

Egypt has been waging a military campaign against terrorists in the Sinai Peninsula, which borders Occupied Palestine.

The army spokesman said the operation covers areas in Sinai, the Delta and the Western Desert and it follows a three-month deadline set by President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi to crush a years-long terrorist insurgency.

The army spokesman said the operation will involve operational and training maneuvers to tighten state control on the country's crossing points with neighboring countries, and urged full cooperation with the law enforcement forces involved in the operation.

Residents reported hearing extensive air activities above the Suez Canal city of Ismailia, which is close to the area of operations in northern and central Sinai.

Security forces have for years battled a Daesh insurgency in North Sinai that has killed hundreds of soldiers and police. The militants have expanded their targets to include civilians over the last year or so.
