Sisi orders military to use brute force

President al Sisi has given permission to the army to wipe out terrorists in Sinai
Fattah al-Sisi authorized troops to use “all brute force” necessary.
No group has yet said it carried out the attack on the al-Rawda mosque near Bir al-Abed, which saw gunmen fire on worshipers after setting off a bomb.
But there is evidence pointing to an affiliate of so-called Islamic State.

Hundreds of soldiers and police have been killed by IS militants in the Sinai peninsula since 2013, when Mr Sisi led the military’s overthrew of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi following mass protests against his rule.

Egypt’s president has told the military to restore “security and stability” to the Sinai peninsula within
three months, after an attack on a mosque there on Friday left 350 people dead and many wounded.
