Helena Burgrova on Egypt's failed "war on terror"
Interview with Dr. Helena Reimer Burgrova, associate fellow at the Institute for International Relations Prague.
A year ago, Dr. Helena Reimer Burgrová wrote the paper ‘Egypt´s failing war on terror’ for the Egypt Policy Brief series of the Heinrich-Böll-Foundation. A year on she sees a mounting escalation of the so called ‘War on Terror’ waged by President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi. With scores of dead civilians especially in Sinai, Reimer Burgrová assesses, that al-Sisi tries to legitimize his rule, while failing to provide real security for the Egyptian people.
