House Speaker Ali Adel Aal said on Sunday 11/2/2018 Egypt is facing tough times which requires the unity of its people and their firm support for the Armed Forces and police to uproot terrorism.
The parliament speaker's remarks were made at the parliament's public session following remarks by lawmaker Salama al Raqei on Sinai military operations.
The speaker noted that Egypt is launching a fierce war against terrorism, calling on all Egyptians to be up to their responsibilities and share the burden at such critical times which will certainly need lots of sacrifices.
Egypt has achieved victory in the 1973 war, thanks to its brave army, the speaker said, adding that all efforts should be augmented behind the Egyptian army and police to reach the target of eliminating terrorism.
He also saluted Sinai residents for all the sacrifices they have offered and are still offering to see Sinai flourish to bring goodness and prosperity to all parts of Egypt.
