Al-Sisi tells army to restore Sinai security in 3 months

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi on Wednesday (November 29th) publicly ordered his military chief of staff to restore security in Sinai within three months, demanding "complete brutal force", AFP reported.

Al-Sisi made his remarks in a televised speech to mark the birthday of the Prophet Mohammed as the country reels from the Friday massacre in a North Sinai mosque.

"Allow me to take this opportunity to commit Gen. Mohamed Farid Hegazy, in front of you and all the Egyptian people: you are responsible for restoring security and stability in Sinai within three months, you and the interior ministry," al-Sisi told the chief of staff in the audience.

"In three months, with God's grace, and with your help and sacrifices and those of the police, Egypt will restore stability and security in Sinai," al-Sisi said.

"Complete brutal force will be used. Complete brutal force."
