Ex-presidential candidate Hamdeen Sabahi and founder of the "popular Egyptian current" insisted that the Sinai attack raises the necessity for the strategic development and control of Sinai.
Sabahi stressed on the urgency of amending Camp David bands concerned with security; enabling full armed control over Sinai, free from restrictions in terms of equipment, in order to protect Egyptian Territory and souls.
Sabahi made the statement on Tuesday in Nasr City during one of a series of conferences to establish a popular movement.
The Nasserist veteran insisted that his suggestions to amend the Camp David Accord during his presidential campaign did not mean war with Israel but was in hopes for Egypt to expand its control over its territory.
He added that Sunday's Rafah attack showed the extent of the need to enhance security and development in Sinai.
The purpose of establishing a popular base is to create political balance in preparation for upcoming parliamentary and local council elections, to achieve the social justice and dignity Egyptians wished for when they revolted, Sabahi said.
He added that the movement will challenge the military council and the Muslim Brotherhood.
The power struggle between the military council and the Muslim Brotherhood has largely overshadowed other political forces in Egypt following Mubarak's ouster in 2011.
Sabahi expressed his rejection to anti-Brotherhood calls of violence.
Anti-Muslim Brotherhood forces plan to raid the group's headquarters on August 24.
