Egypt's parliament fully supports the Egyptian military's "honorable and just" counter-insurgency effort, Operation Sinai 2018, to purge the country of terrorists, parliament speaker Ali Abdel-Aal said on Friday evening.

Abdel-Aal said that he is closely following the military operation, which "aims to thwart all terrorist plots threatening the security of Egypt," the statement added.

On Friday morning, the Egyptian Armed Forces launched Operation Sinai 2018 in north and central Sinai and other parts of the country, aiming to destroy jihadist militant groups that are active in the area.

“The parliament values all the sacrifices of brave Egyptian soldiers, and calls on Egyptians to stand with police and the armed forces in the country’s war against terrorism, until the land of Egypt is cleansed of it forever,” the statement read.
