Three years later, the violence and terrorism Sisi pledged to prevent remain a potent reality.The Egyptian Center for Social and Economic Rights recorded 932 fully documented bodies, 294 partly documented bodies, and 29 undocumented bodies, including 17 women and 30 teenage girls and boys.Almost immediately, in response to an already restive North Sinai, elite brigades from the Second and Third Field Armies, assisted by the air force, launched operation "Desert Storm" to quell the burgeoning rebellion. Afterward, the military spokesperson declared that 78 "terrorists" had been killed and 207 arrested, effectively ending terrorism in the Sinai.It was the worst terrorist operation in the history of Egypt and Russia. In the first two months of this year, SP reported that it had destroyed 25 armored vehicles (including tanks, minesweepers and bulldozers) and killed 100 soldiers (the military acknowledged 37).Clearly, violence and terrorism are thriving, despite Sisi's pledge. One of the main motivations behind the 2013 military coup was to counter potential violence and terrorism.
