DAMASCUS, SYRIA (5:15 A.M.) – The Egyptian President, ‘Abdel-Fattah Al-Sisi, confirmed his support for the Syrian, Libyan, and Iraqi armies during a live television interview with RTP TV on Tuesday.
“There should be international support for the Libyan, Iraqi & Syrian national armies to ensure security in their countries,” the Egyptian President stated to RTP TV.
Sisi has been a staunch opponent to the Qatari-backed Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and Syria since their attempt to seize the Egyptian government.
In addition to the Muslim Brotherhood issue in both Syria and Egypt, Sisi has shown support for the regional armies combatting the so-called “Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham” (ISIS).
The Egyptian Army is currently completing a month-long mission to expel the remaining Islamic State terrorists from the Sinai Peninsula; thus far, this operation has been a success.
