Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Sisi signed a decree to prolong the country’s state of emergency for three additional months, local media reported. The presidential decision was reportedly supported by the country’s parliament and will enter into force beginning on Thursday.
The decree notes that the armed forces and police must do everything possible to fight terrorism and the financial sources of terrorism, as well as protect lives and property, the MENA news agency reported late Sunday.
