This came during a meeting held by Minister Zaki with officers and soldiers of the Second Field Army, where he observed a minute of silence in remembrance of martyred servicemen, who sacrificed their souls in defense of the homeland.

He also offered the greetings of President Abdel Fattah El Sisi to the attendees, and thanked Sinai tribesmen for their cooperation with the army and police to restore security and stability in Sinai peninsula.
