The presidential spokesperson stated that Al-Sisi directed “to continue to maintain competence and the highest levels of readiness and combat readiness to carry out any tasks entrusted to members of the armed forces to protect Egypt’s national security, in light of the current challenges in the region and the great capacity of the Egyptian Armed Forces in all branches, specialties and armament systems. ”
