Egyptian President Adbel Fattah al-Sisi consoled the families of the dead soldiers on Friday and wrote on his Facebook page that “the blood of the nation of Egypt was spilled in the sands of Sinai only increases the desire and determination to complete the campaign (against the terrorists).” The ISIS ambush has been condemned by the Arab world, chief amongst them Saudi Arabia.

 

 

Speaking to Egyptian reporters, al-Sisi stressed that “the war against ISIS in Sinai will be long, but the ability to fight them has improved, and the weapons used to fight them have gotten better.”

 

The Egyptian Ministry of the Interior further reported that the Egyptian military captured various weapons from the terrorists, including over 260 assault rifles of different makes.
