Egypt transfers Al-Arish port to armed forces over security fears

: Thursday, June 12 - 2014 @ 02:19

Egypt has transferred the assets of the Al-Arish port in the Sinai Peninsula from a civilian-run agency to the armed forces, citing national security reasons in an area where militant attacks have increased in the past year, Reuters has reported. “Egypt’s national security requires that the port be under the control of the armed forces due to its sensitive location,” the head of the Port Authority of Port Said, retired major general Ahmed Sharaf, told the news service. Sharaf said the port’s employees were working as usual but said he did not know if the armed forces would supplement the workers or replace them.
