The Egyptian Revolutionary Council (ERC) yesterday warned of an "escalation of terror attacks in Sinai Penensula."

ERC's remarks came after a recent militant attack which targeted a water pumping station east of the Suez Canal, leaving 11 soldiers dead.

"How many times have our soldiers been betrayed since the Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi took office," ERC said on Twitter

The group slammed Al-Sisi's approach of "letting Zionists into Sinai without a visa, especially after the Rafah massacre, in which 300 worshippers were killed."
