Another terrorist attack in the northern Sinai (Egypt)

The terrorist act, which is exactly how the Arabian-language media write about the incident, occurred near the border of Egypt and Gaza Strip - in the area of ​​the Egyptian settlement of Rafah. According to some information, the militants of the so-called “Vilayata Sinai” may be involved in the undermining of an armored car. They carry out attacks and attack the Egyptian police and military in the northern part of the peninsula.

For a long time, the Egyptian authorities have kept the border crossing at Rafah closed. On Saturday, the checkpoint was completely closed. On the eve of the authorities of Gaza called on the official Cairo to open the border crossing. During a press conference in the Gaza Strip, the Minister of Information for Autonomy stated:

We call on the Egyptian authorities to fulfill the promises that were previously made in respect of citizens leaving Gaza.

Official Cairo appeals Gaza disregarded. Earlier, the Egyptian authorities stated that to fully open the checkpoint in Rafah, full coordination with the authorities of the Gaza Strip is needed, but there is no such coordination yet. Gazans decided to storm the border crossing - up to several hundred Palestinians attacked the checkpoint and broke into Egyptian territory.

After some time, an explosion thundered in Rafah. Whether local members of the DAISH cell were involved in it, or was it the work of the “guests”, the Egyptian investigation finds out, which has recently been forced to intensify work in the north of Sinai.

    Egyptian Islamists most likely put their hand to this attack.

      It’s a pity for people, and for the special services - a fat minus.

    "SOMEONE" is deliberately undermining the situation in Egypt, because lately he began to take a not quite "TU" position! And he also dares to buy Russian weapons and receive Putin on a visit. Not good.
    Tourism, I think, has died for at least a year! And this is a serious blow to Egypt!

      I do not think that even if it becomes calm in Egypt, many tourists will go there. Unless the most desperate and at very low prices.

        I was in Sharm last winter and everything was fine there.
        Tourism in Egypt - 3rd place in income after the Suez Canal and oil.
        And where else to go in the winter when you just crave the sun? Everywhere is much more expensive.

        You are mistaken. People firmly believe that bad things can happen to someone out there, and they’re not fucking any kind. Egypt shakes for a long time, and tourists always went to them. They just say that tourist areas are protected. Logic)

    What an interesting and uncomplicated time we live in! Here, for example, how to determine which country is trying to resist the States and could be our potential ally? Very simple: where the attacks take place, there you have to catch a fish.

    Dejavu. Putin’s rights - it is necessary to unite, and not play in the coalition.

      as I see it, we are entering into a coalition with enemies not in order to act together, but in order to be held accountable in the case of stocks, i.e. so that there was something to present and for one at least somehow try to secure your aircraft with a pen and paper. Although with jackals, in principle, you can’t count on anything, the knife will immediately appear in the back! This they have clearly demonstrated more than once
