On Saturday, Colonel Tamer Rifai Spokesperson for the Egyptian Army announced that the Egyptian Army foiled a suicide attack of ISIS on one of its checkpoint around Arish city in northern Sinai.

According to Colonel Rifai, the attackers were wearing Egyptian Army uniforms and explosive belts under it. However, the Egyptian Army soldiers discovered the attackers and killed them before they reached the checkpoint.

Meanwhile, the ISIS-linked news agency Amaq reported that ISIS fighters repelled an attack of the Egyptian Army south of al-Midan village west of Arish city. Amaq said that ISIS snipers killed 2 Egyptian soldiers. Moreover, a Humvee of the Egyptian Army was destroyed by ISIS fighters with an IED during the clashes according to Amaq.

This is considered the second attack of ISIS against the Egyptian Army in the last 48 hours. The two attacks on October 13 and 14 prove that ISIS fighters in Sinai are still capable of launching defensive, and offensive operation against the Egyptian Army.

As a respond to the new attacks the Egyptian Army will likely launch a security operation around Arish city to eliminate ISIS cells. Sadly, such operations are only effective for short period as ISIS fighters in Sinai proved that they have the experience needed to regroup and relaunch attacks after such security operations.

    Yup, Egypt, whom have pissed in their own well for years, pissed so much that when the day comes for quenching your thirst, you have nothing to drink.
    And the battle in Syria/Iraq is going down the drains, they are been relocated by the west, and spread all over, incl Afghanistan and Sinai.

    And again Sinai, we all now why, Suez, and Israel/Saudi-Barbaria.
    If the stupid Egyptians was smart, compared to what they have done before, with this ISISrael bitch in charge, I place no hope in that, you know, taking to ones senses, ask the Palestinians for help, because we all know uISISa and ISISrael is behind this groups.
    They can help you, battle experience, is vitale, and your boys knows little or nothing when it comes to real combat, they will be massacred.

    peace

      “Egypt is an important player in the region’s political equation. In relation to Russia’s foreign policy in the Middle East, Egypt is an important component that has had a considerable impact since the fall of the Muslim Brotherhood, driven by the Egyptian people and army.
      It seems that the plan Vladimir Putin developed as soon as he became Russian president largely relies on redrawing the Middle East’s map through forming highly utilitarian alliances with some of the region’s political bodies who had never expected to form an alliance of any kind, or cooperate at any level, with Russia.”

      So in your eyes Putin has been pissing in a water well too? ?

    Wow, Egyptian proudly goes along with starving the Palestinians to death, and now fate is returning the favor of death upon the Egyptians.
    Perhaps a plague is next for them refusing to fight for their brothers?
