Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in libroChapter

Abstract

After Mubarak was ousted in 2011, violence increased significantly in Sinai and public authorities lost their control over the area. Since the ousting of Morsi in July 2013, the instability of the Peninsula has been growing, especially in the northern area, near the Israeli border, where there is the highest concentration of multiple terrorist groups. Although the Egyptian government launched three counterterrorism campaigns between 2011 and 2013, the results have not been satisfactory. The growing instability of the Sinai is thus posing a serious threat to the security of North Africa and the Middle East
