A day earlier, an IED, which had been planted by ISIS elements, struck an Egyptian military bulldozer in the village of al-Ataiyqah in the southern part of the region of Sheikh Zuweid in Sinai. Amaq said that the bulldozer was damaged as a result of the IED explosion.

The Egyptian military and security forces launched a large scale security operation, codenamed “Sinai 2018,” more than seven months ago to neutralize the remaining ISIS cells in the Sinai Peninsula. Despite that government forces killed and arrested hundreds of terrorist during the operation, the terrorist group still appears to be capable of carrying out attacks in the peninsula.

The upcoming few days will likely witness security operations of the Egyptian military and security forces against ISIS elements and sympathizers in al-Arish and Sheikh Zuweid in response to these new attacks.

    this americans tanks unless they are used against civilians, are pieces of expensive junk looks like. They can not take a hit very much like the german leopards.

      Yeah, this was clearly observed in the wars between Israel and Egypt/Syria and between USA and Iraq.

          • James

            I think the most recent one is the most relevant…

          • occupybacon

            In the most recent one there was no Russian or US tanks involved.

          • James

            Ah….yes, that’s right.

    It is strange the nature of this fighting, while some sort of battle is definitely occurring we only hear about it through official Egyptian government and ISIS news agencies.
