Daesh calls for attacks during Presidential elections as Operation Sinai 2018 intensifies

Daesh calls for attacks during presidential elections as Operation Sinai 2018 intensifies: The Daeshbags have reportedly put out a video urging their fighters to stage terror attacks during next month’s presidential elections and warning Egyptians to stay away from polling centers, according to the Associated Press. The video, which calls the elections an act of apostasy, makes a brief mention of the Armed Force offensive in Sinai, suggesting it was made after the campaign began Friday. As for the offensive itself, the Armed Forces announced on Monday that 12 militants were killed and about 100 other suspected militants have been arrested and weapons caches destroyed. This would bring the announced deaths in the largest military operation in Egypt in years to 28 militants.

The Armed Forces also announced yesterday that it has launched a hotline service to allow citizens across the country to report suspected terrorists.
