    According to sources on the ground, there isn’t really an IS presence on the Sinai peninsula. IS is just a straw man for an operation that’s intended to get military aid and stop supply to Palestinian militants. So Egypt is doing this to get money from the US and do a favour to Israel.

    it makes me glad to see that the General means business in Sinai. Took a great risk there since casualties are to be expected and noone wants that (public opinion that is) but he is determined to make Egypt safe again. The whole world is watching….give those fanatics hell!
