Especially when the security situation in the country is so sensitive and the country is on high-alert due to the operation taking place in North Waziristan. Not only did this fiasco challenge the strength of the police, it was in complete disregard of the other residents surrounding the area and the countrys rules.

El-Sissi led the military’s ouster of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi after millions demonstrated against him in the streets last July. Since Morsi’s ouster, his supporters have staged near-daily protests demanding his return to power. Such demonstrations have usually descended into violence. Security forces have killed hundreds and detained thousands of Morsi’s supporters and in return, Islamic militants have stepped up attacks against the military and police across Egypt. An al-Qaida-inspired group based in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, has claimed responsibility for most of the major attacks, including suicide bombings and attempted assassinations of top security officials.
