Egypt’s President al-Sisi facing serious questions about strategy to bring Isis hotspot Sinai province under control

24 Nov

The Sinai mosque massacre proves what many have suspected for months in Egypt: that Isis – even without a direct claim yet –  is taking over the peninsula, targeting more and more of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi’s officers and police.  Thus proving that tactical defeat in Iraq and Syria means for Isis merely a change of location.

The ‘fall’ of Sinai — perhaps even stretching down to Sharm e-Sheikh — the supposedly ‘safe’ tourist resort — would only further undermine al-Sisi’s brash claims after his coup that he would end ‘terrorism’ in Egypt.
