Another terrorist attack in Egypt

20
Another terrorist attack occurred in Egypt today. Militants have chosen the Sinai Peninsula as the center of their activity. Recall that the positions of the Islamic State terrorist group are strong in Sinai (* prohibited in the Russian Federation). All efforts of local security forces to eliminate the terrorist threat are currently in vain.


This time, terrorists affiliated with ISIS (*) group Ansar Beit al-Mahdis (*) attacked a convoy of trucks coming from one of the factories located in the central part of the Sinai Peninsula. The attack was made from an ambush. As a result of the attack, at least 10 people, including troops, were killed. It is noted that among the dead - the officers. One of them is Colonel Ibrahim Hussein Mohammad.

Local media publish materials that say squall fire from grenade launchers and small weapons. As a result, seven trucks were completely burned. A military convoy simply did not have time to organize at least some resistance to terrorists. Weapons belonging to the convoy fell into the hands of the militants.

Another terrorist attack in Egypt


If you believe the official reports of the Ministry of Defense of Egypt, then cement was transported in trucks.

Recall that a few weeks ago, Egyptian army units attempted to destroy the core of the terrorist group in Sinai. To this end, several military units, including special forces, were deployed in the region. However, the operation suffered a fiasco, since the militants had received information about the advancement of the column even before it began. Dozens of Egyptian soldiers were killed in shelling by terrorists who set up an ambush similar to that of today.

      There is local Villat Sinai. It exists in parallel with Sham. They are quite toothy there - on smuggled flows from eastern and northern Africa. And M-60 was captured / drifted and Apaches were shot down.

      Heirs of the pharaohs look for moles in your environment; otherwise, such ambushes will be repeated with frightening intervals.

      Yes, on a relax, there are military men ... Well, the Turks are taught, and then they always fall .. Sinai, not so mountainous ... There are not many places for ambushes .. If there was a military guard, they could and conduct reconnaissance of the route .. Plus, they are corrupt, the Egyptians ... Drain, Old, at all levels ..

        In Egypt, everything is much cooler. Officers of the local army own about 40% of the business in the country, so the soldiers are building hotel complexes there.

    Yes, Arabs and betrayal are synonyms. For them, this is not a betrayal. This is a business. And these businessmen are sitting in headquarters.

    Sinai is quite mountainous in the east and south. There are only a couple of roads along the east and west coasts. All convoys (including tourist ones) are escorted by an armed convoy. The territory is rather sparsely populated and waterless. (Personal observations of October 2017).

      Well, what am I talking about ... I think not the mountains of Afghanistan. Where the road passes, close to the hills, you can add. set up observation posts. There is no greenback. Hang drones over the route. Laziness ... Plus, bakshish, you need to take ... Not good (I'm afraid the ban, they will slap it again))), warriors, Egyptians.

    And the colonels lack intelligence in reconnaissance of the dangerous route, and this is the result of the preparation. And what about the simplest drones with a video camera on the route can not be launched or partners do not deliver?
