Sisi threatens to deploy army against Egyptians who took over deserted state land

Egypt President Abdel-Fattah Al-Sisi threatened Monday to use force against Egyptians who have unlawfully seized state-owned lands or irrigation facilities over the past decades.

Sisi said police and soldiers might be deployed to reclaim the state properties, which includes lands and irrigation works.

Over the past three decades, farmers have taken over deserted land along the Nile which officially belongs to the state.

Sisi warned that this process will no longer be tolerated.

"The interior ministry…and if needed…the armed forces [will ensure] that all these [irregularities] made throughout the past 20 or 30 years… are removed within six months," he said in a commanding manner.
