British ambassador to Cairo John Casson said that the United Kingdom (UK) has given to the Egyptian government all recorded maps related to the placement of landmines in the western desert since World War II. Casson told state run news agency MENA that the UK presented about $10m for the removal of landmines from Egypt’s western desert and for the development of awareness campaigns for residents over the past 10 years. The campaigns have reached more than 16,000 people, according to Casson. In particular, there was increased progress towards removing landmines over the past two years, Casson further noted. “500 sqkm of mines were cleared,” he said in partnership with the EU and the UN.

Egypt’s ambassador to Tunisia Nabil Habashi said the embassy is increasing efforts in its negotiations with Tunisian authorities to release a fishing boat detained in Sfax port. The Egyptian fishing boat, along with 16 fishermen, were detained near the port on Friday on charges of trespassing regional waters. Habashi said: “The fishermen ignored the warnings by the Tunisian coast guards, which urged the latter to arrest the crew for investigation.” Dozens of Egyptian fishermen have been detained, or are currently missing in nearby ports of Tunisia, Libya, Yemen, and Sudan. Some of the boats are thought to have sunk and others and their crews have remained in detention for lengthy months. Some 17 fishermen were detained near the port of Benghazi in Libya in mid-August, as they tried to enter the port. The deterioration of fisheries in Egypt is believed to be the trigger behind the increased influx of Egyptian fishermen travelling to regional waters outside of Egyptian territory. More»

Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi ordered on Saturday "increased security at vital facilities" after a high-ranking army officer was shot dead on the outskirts of Cairo earlier in the day. During a meeting with top government officials led by the prime minister, El-Sisi said that Egypt would not forget the “sacrifices made by the martyrs of the nation from the Armed Forces and police,” presidency spokesman Alaa Youssef said in a statement. Earlier on Saturday, Egyptian military Brigadier General Adel Rajaei, an armoured division commander in Dahshur, was shot dead by unknown assailants in front of his house on the outskirts of Cairo. On Friday, Egypt's army said it killed 21 militants in North Sinai as part of its intensified anti-terror efforts after an October militant attack that killed 12 army soldiers and injured six others. Egyptian forces have in recent years been battling a prolonged Islamist insurgency based in parts of the northern Sinai region. More»

Egypt’s Court of Cassation rejected on Saturday an appeal by ousted president Mohamed Morsi against a 20-year prison sentence in the Ittihadiya clashes case, exhausting Morsi’s appeals in the case. The ousted president is being tried in a number of cases, including cases where he has been sentenced to death. He is currently appealing all sentences but this is the first case where he has exhausted all appeals. The court also confirmed the 20-year sentence against eight of the Muslim Brotherhood group and Morsi’s staff, as well as a 10-year sentence against two. In April 2015, a Cairo court sentenced Morsi to 20 years in jail for inciting violence that led to the death of 10 people in clashes outside the Ittihadiya Presidential Palace on 5 December 2012.

In an unprecedented and critical development in attacks targeting police and army personnel in recent years, a little-known and unaffiliated militant group called Lewaa El-Thawra (Revolution Brigade) on Saturday claimed responsibility for assassinating a high-ranking army officer who is head of the army’s ninth armour division, Major Adel Ragaai. On Saturday at dawn, the head of the Egyptian army’s ninth armour division was killed after being subjected to an assassination operation, the army media office told Daily News Egypt. Following the assassination operation, the group Lewaa El-Thawra claimed responsibility for the act on its Twitter account. Following the shooting, the group also said that it had seized the personal weapon of Ragaai. The army’s ninth armour division is based in Dahshur, Giza. Ragaai was previously assigned to lead an army battalion that destroyed tunnels between Egypt and the Gaza Strip by filling them with water. More»

A senior Egyptian military official was shot dead on Saturday outside his home on the outskirts of Cairo, security sources and his wife said Gunmen opened fire on Brigadier General Adel Rajaaie, an armored division commander who had served in troubled northern Sinai, as he left his home in Obour city to go to work, his wife told Reuters. "Minutes after he left the house I heard gunfire, I went out to find him covered in blood ... he received a lot of bullets .. He died instantly," said Samia Zain El Abedeen. She said neighbors told her the assailants had automatic weapons and fled in a car. A newly-emerged militant group calling itself Louwaa el Thawra, or the Revolution Brigade, claimed responsibility for the attack on a Twitter account that was suspended shortly after the claim. Rajaaie, 52, is the most senior military official to be assassinated since the toppling of Islamist President Mohamed Mursi in mid-2013 by general-turned-president Abdel Fattah al-Sisi. More»

The Egyptian government announced on Thursday its decision to cut down spending by 15 to 20 per cent to limit the country’s budget deficit, state-run Al-Ahram news website reported. The report said that the cabinet approved the decisions of an economic ministerial commission to minimise spending in the budgets of all ministries, government institutions, state companies and administrative authorities. The government also decided to reduce the personnel of its ministerial foreign representatives by 50 per cent, saying their tasks will be carried out by foreign ministry diplomats instead. “The rationalisation of spending will by no means affect the wages, salaries or the investment budget,” the government assured. Egypt has been suffering economic recession over the past five years of political turmoil, leading to the decline of tourism, exports, foreign investments and foreign currency reserves. More»

Egypt will receive a submarine from Germany in early 2017, Egyptian Navy Commander Ossama Rabie announced on Thursday. The Dolphin class (Type 209) submarine will be the first of its kind to join the Egyptian Navy, he added in a press conference on the celebration of Navy Day. Rabie noted that Egypt is due to receive three other submarines from Germany later. Egyptian Navy officers are currently being trained in Germany on using the submarine. The vessel will be used to protect Egypt's national security and economic interests, he said. Navy Day marks the sinking of the Israeli destroyer Eilat on October 21, 1967. Armament deals over the past two years have contributed significantly to raising the efficiency of Egypt's navy in light of threats and hostilities that currently surround the Egyptian state, said Rabie. In October 2016, Egypt received its second French Mistral helicopter carrier. Egypt also received a multi-purpose frigate FREMM as part of an arms deal with France costing 5.2 billion euros. More»

The Ministry Foreign Affairs said that Egypt welcomes the United Nations-brokered 72-hour ceasefire in Yemen which came into effect to allow for humanitarian aid to reach citizens. “Egypt hopes that all parties will abide by the truce and that negotiations will be reopened in order to reach a solution. Egypt supports a political solution in Yemen, based on the UN security council decisions and the Gulf’s initiatives,” ministry spokesperson Ahmed Abou Zaid said Wednesday. UN envoy Ismail Ould Sheikh Ahmed announced that all warring parties in Yemen have agreed to a three-day ceasefire, due to start Wednesday night. Yemen has witnessed increased turmoil for almost 16 months, following the power grab of the Houthi forces—the Shia rebel troops led by Abdul Malik Al-Houthi in the north. The group took over many Yemeni cities and entered the capital Sana’a in September 2014, amid clashes with the state forces, which left hundreds dead, including civilians. In March 2015, Saudi Arabia launched airstrikes targeting Houthi forces in several cities. However, those airstrikes widely affected civilians and children and led to the deterioration of public services. More»

Four democratic parties have decided to boycott presidency-sponsored the National Youth Conference which is scheduled to take place in Sharm El-Sheikh on 25 October, according to a statement released by the Socialist People’s Alliance party (SPAP) on Friday. Besides SPAP, the Egyptian Popular Current party (EPCP), and Al-Karama and Al-Dastour parties have joined this boycott. The party members decided to arrange a meeting to discuss their stances regarding the national conference and agreed on boycotting attending it, justifying that the event is a ‘’décor’’ proposing covering people eyes on the country real issues, and it will not agree with their opinions and vision for the state conditions. ‘’There is a systematic attempt to thwart the youths’ goals and to restrict freedoms. Moreover, revolutionary young people have been detained and other martyred for calling for freedom and justice,” head of SPAP Medhat Al-Zahed said during the meeting. More»
