(VOVworld) - Egypt's President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said Sunday in a televised address that a “unified Arab force” was needed to fight the growing terrorist threats in the Middle East. He noted that Jordan and the United Arab Emirates have offered to send troops as Egypt steps up its efforts to battle the Islamic State (ISIS) in neighboring Libya. His comment comes a week after a series of Egyptian airstrikes targeted ISIS in Libya, in retaliation for the slaughter of 21 Egyptian Christians by the jihadist group.

IS has taken control of many parts of Iraq’s territory and is invading many regions in Libya and Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula.
