IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz toured the Egypt border on Tuesday and called on the government in Cairo to immediately act to restore control over the Sinai Peninsula.

Gantz said that terrorist groups were already setting up bases inside the Sinai that would be used to launch attacks against Israel. He added that the Defense Ministry would continue working to complete the fence along the border expected to be completed by the end of the year.

"The more significant problem is what's happening in Sinai, where terror bases are being established and we expect the Egyptian to exert their sovereignty there," Gantz said.
