Egypt, Arab Allies Eye Anti-Militant Alliance
Mon Nov 3, 2014 22:12:57

U.S. Arab allies Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait are discussing the creation of a military pact against ISIS, with the possibility of a joint force to intervene around the Middle East.

Four Egyptian military officials have confirmed the talks to The Associated Press. They say the alliance would be separate from the U.S.-led air campaign against the ISIS group in Iraq and Syria.

The alliance, they said, could intervene in other extremist hot-spots like Libya, where militants have taken over several cities, and Yemen, where Shiite Houthis have seized control of the capital. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the talks are secret.
