Army deploys reinforcements to Sinai

The Egyptian army has deployed major reinforcements to the North Sinai city
of Arish in a bid to improve the deteriorating security situation in the
area.

London-based Asharq al-Awsat newspaper cited on Saturday a security source
as saying that armored vehicles will be deployed, though the exact location
is yet to be determined.

The paper added that the vehicles will be used to secure the city rather
than conduct raids on suspected criminal hideouts. The army will also use
concrete blocks to reinforce checkpoints and better secure the city.

Concrete blocks that arrived in the city will be used at checkpoints to
better secure the city and prevent attacks.

Disorder has spread in Sinai since autocrat Hosni Mubarak was ousted in the
25 January revolution, with Islamist militants stepping up attacks on
security forces and the Israeli border. President Mohamed Morsy has pledged
to restore security in the impoverished region.

Three Egyptian policemen killed last week when gunmen fired on their car in
Arish before escaping.It was the biggest attack against army and police
forces since the ambush killing of 16 border guards on 5 August.

The paper also added that the identities of the perpetrators of the latest
attacks on police in Sinai have not been determined and that the information
security authorities have has not yet helped with tracking them down.
