The Egyptian presidential hopeful, former Minister of Defense and leader of the July 3 military coup Abdel-Fattah Al-Sisi said Thursday that the Egyptian army is capable of invading Algeria "in three days," Algerian media reported.
According to the Algerian news website Al-Shorouk Online, Sisi told an audience of University teaching staff that the Egyptian army is capable of protecting the western borders against any assault by the so-called Free Egyptian Army.
"The Egyptian army is strong… before anyone is hurt on the western borders, the army will be there. This is a warning to the Free Army. And if anything happens, I can invade Algeria in three days, if any Egyptian person is harmed," Sisi said.
