CAIRO: The Modern Egypt Party has called for considering North Sinai a war zone to enable the Armed Forces and police to eliminate terrorism.

MEP leader Nabil Debes said Wednesday terrorists are using residents to commit terrorist acts.

The party sent a memo to the president urging him to use his powers as Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces to declare a state of war after consulting the national defense council and the approval of the Cabinet and the supreme military council, Debes said.

A conclusive decision to fight terrorism is needed so as not to affect development plans in Sinai, the party noted.
