A senior Bedouin leader said Tuesday that Defense Minister Abdel Fattah al-Sisi is mulling changes to a law banning land ownership as well as the release of Sinai prisoners that have served half their sentences.
The announcement came during a meeting with Sisi and around 100 tribal leaders.
Bedouin chief Aref Abu Erk told Al-Masry Al-Youm that the tribes of South and North Sinai are proud of the Armed Forces, which have always supported the people of Sinai.
Chief Eid Abu Senger said there is another meeting in the works with President Mohamed Morsy and chiefs from Sinai tribes as part of Sinai Liberation Day celebrations this weekend.
