(IraqiNews.com) Egypt’s former Foreign Minister, Mohammed Al-Orabi, said that Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi will coordinate with Arab countries to send military forces to confront the organization of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant during the coming period.
This announcement came when Sisi called, during an extended meeting between Sisi and Egyptians media in Cairo on Saturday, to form an ‘Arab Alliance’ to counter the threat of ISIL, who dominate large parts of Iraq and Syria saying that “the organization of ISIL poses a real threat and not an illusory threat as some people believe”, adding that “this threat requires the formation of an Arab NATO.”
Orabi added that “it may happened during the coming period in order to repel any aggression or mobilization undertaken by ISIL against Gulf countries.”
He said “Sisi will intervene quickly to counter any aggression against those countries, once the occurrence of anything that threatens their security. Sisi will intervene immediately to protect them.”
