Egypt’s Parliament extends state of emergency

The Egyptian Parliament on Monday extended the state of emergency that has been in effect in the country since 2017 by a majority vote, the MENA News Agency reported.

Earlier, the relevant decree was signed by the head of state Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.

According to the decision, “the armed forces and police must do everything necessary to counter terrorism and its financing, monitor the safety of private and public property, and protect the lives of citizens.”

The President imposed the state of emergency in Egypt in April 2017 after two terrorist attacks in Tanta and Alexandria. More than 50 people were killed, and more than 100 injured. Then, under the law, the state of emergency was extended each time for three months.
