Egyptian sources have reported that the Egyptian army’s Chief of Staff and Deputy Chairman of the ruling military council, Lt Gen Sami Anan, announced on Thursday night that Egyptian Armed Forces have raised their state of preparedness and sent a strongly-worded message of warning to Israel informing it that any act of provocation that may affect the al-Aqsa Mosque, will be considered a threat to Egyptian national security.

The sources confirmed that on Sunday, February 12, Anan convened an emergency meeting with a number of his aides in the ruling military council to discuss Zionist plans to mobilize extremist Jewish groups at the entrances to the al-Aqsa Mosque.
