November 4th, 2012 by Editor

The Egyptian Organization for Human Rights (EOHR) condemns the attack occurred on November 3, 2012, against the Egyptian police car in Gisr El Wadi Area, Aresh, Sinai. 3 policemen died and the fourth was injured. EOHR warns against more terrorism attacks targeting vital governmental interests in Sinai, which can turn this sensitive area to a resort for terrorists. So, EOHR calls upon the Egyptian government to spread security in Sinai Peninsula in order to confront the increasing terrorist attacks in the area. EOHR also calls upon the Egyptian Ministry of Interior to bring the real perpetrators to accountability as soon as possible in addition to implementing comprehensive strategies to reform the policing authorities in accordance with the principals and philosophy of the Egyptian revolution that are definitely not different from the international standards for human rights in this regard. 

Mr. Hafez Abu Seada, the head of EOHR, stated that this attack against the police is not the first; the area witnessed increasing disorders after the Egyptian revolution including kidnapping foreign tourists, attacking police stations and search points etc. when terrorists attacked Rafah Search Point, 16 Egyptian officers and soldiers died and 7 were injured. The role of the policing authorities has to be reactivated as soon as possible in order to come to an end of the series of bloody attacks in Sinai.
