Military Spokesperson Mohamed Ahmed Ali denied plans to deploy US forces in
Sinai as part of a ceasefire agreement between Israel and Hamas.

“The armed forces confirms entrenched Egyptian national security policies to
preserve its sovereignty. It doesn’t accept the presence of foreign forces
on its land,” Ali posted on Facebook.

He added that the only foreign forces based in Sinai are multinational ones
from 13 countries. The Multinational Force and Observers have been in Sinai
since 25 April 1982, after Israel withdrew from Sinai, as part of the two
sides’ commitment to the Camp David Peace Accords.

The Israeli DEBKAfile website, which is close to the Israeli intelligence
establishment, reported Friday that there will be a US military presence in
Sinai as part of the truce between Gaza and Israel.

The report was also denied by the Egyptian military attache in Washington,
Major General Mohamed al-Keshki.
