Another major operation of the Egyptian security forces took place on the Sinai Peninsula, where the terrorist groups associated with the so-called "Islamic State" have recently been active. During the fighting, the Egyptian soldiers eliminated at least 59 terrorists, but they themselves suffered losses. If you believe the official reports of the Ministry of Defense of Egypt, then during the fighting killed seven soldiers of the Egyptian army.

The Egyptian Army conducted a large-scale counter-terrorism operation in the Sinai Peninsula, declared by ISIL militants its province


It should be noted that the militants some time ago announced the creation of a “province of an Islamic state” (“wilayat of Sinai”) in Sinai. At the same time, the number of attacks on Egyptian roadblocks and checkpoints increased. Earlier, the leaders of ISIS stated that they intend to take control of the Gaza Strip, for which they use the territory of the Sinai Peninsula.

Information Agency France-Presse writes that another attack by ISIS militants in Sinai occurred last weekend. As a result of this attack, not only soldiers of the Egyptian army were killed, but also more than 60 civilians. Terrorists attacked populated areas in the area of ​​the cities of El-Arish and Sheikh Zuweid using automatic weapon, grenade launchers and mortars.

    Roadblocks, checkpoint ... Egypt, really, is waging war on its own territory? Then, what does it prevent them from initiating FULL-SCALE operations against ISIS?

      ISIS is expanding. Did the Americans create a coalition to counter militants or to support them? The zone of instability is getting closer.

      As I understand it, this is a sabotage state. There are no state. structures and formations - sabotage-partisan something.
      Religious affiliation is added to this - Sunnis and Shiites, it is impossible for the country to support the co-religionists of their country

        ISIS preaches Orthodox Islam of the 7th century AD. Letter to letter. The Caliphate does not and cannot have friends, and the normal state is war and expansion. Well, at least theoretically. The true reason for the emergence of such a world scumbag may not be religion. But we can only guess about this.

    It’s interesting, how are the Ishilovites and Muslim brothers related to each other? Or is this one thing? After all, Sinai was the sandbox of the brothers.

      IG - considers the Brothers to be dead and incapable of asserting their rights. And it gives a chance to change everything by joining the IG.

      After the verdict of Musri and Co., as well as the murder in the own homes of 13 of the minor leaders of the Muslim Brothers, many of the movement revised their views and went to Sinai to the Islamic State. Now the Muslim Brotherhood is the main mobilization reserve of the Islamic State.

    As America says, they are. So far, both of them are acting on a large-scale destabilization of the situation in the region.

    Who feeds ISIS?! I understand that the Americans help them with money and weapons, but in terms of food?! There has been a long war in Syria, Iraq is burning even more. Most of the peasants are at war or left. There are many questions and there are no answers ...
