The Minister of Defense and Military Production, Major General Sedqi Sobhi, -accompanied with a number of armed forces officials- visited on Friday the wounded soldiers and security forces who participated in “Sinai Security Operations” and were injured during the performance of their duties.
Sobhi said that despicable acts of terrorism will not discourage the heroes of the armed forces from performing their duties and securing their homeland.
He also expressed his appreciation for their sacrifices to deter anyone who wishes to tamper with the security of Egypt.
Sobhi pointed out that Egypt – with its people and army – is currently on its way towards eliminating all attempts to destabilize security and stability across Egyptian territories.
For their part, all injured soldiers expressed their happiness for the visit and their insistence on returning to carry out their duties in order to secure the nation and preserve its great people, no matter how much sacrifices they are making.
Friday’s visit comes as the army continues its comprehensive military campaign Operation Sinai 2018.
The campaign was launched “to implement the plan of comprehensive confrontation with terrorist and criminal elements and organisations in North and Central Sinai, and in other areas in the Nile Delta and desert regions west of the Nile Valley,” according to the Armed Forces.
