On February 17, ISIS fighters conducted a series of attacks against the Egyptian Army in the Sinai Peninsula, according to the ISIS-linked news agency Amaq.

ISIS fighters reportedly destroyed four armored vehicles, three tracked armored personnel carriers (APCs), two bulldozers and five trucks of the Egyptian Army with IEDs and rocket-propelled grenades in the central and southern part of Sinai.

Moreover, ISIS snipers killed two soldiers and injured one other, according to Amaq. Four more soldiers were reportedly killed during clashes with ISIS fighters in the southern part of the Sinai Peninsula.

Army units also discovered and destroyed 158 ISIS hideouts, positions and communication centers in Sinai, according to Col. Rifai.

    I would put the Isis claims in the fake news category until proof is provided.

  • Ed

    I’m assuming that there is an endless supply of Daesh fighters considering that they just keep coming and coming and coming? Or is their number in the region of a few million or more? Absolutely incredible.

    • Icarus Tanović

      They all die.

      • You can call me Al

    • Ronald

      You hit the real problem , Saudi Arabia from their creation of Al Qaeda with Bush Sr. and bin Laden back in the early eighties has been sponsoring Wahhabi schools around the world, especially in Sunni nations .
      Last year they spent 2 billion dollars opening 650 schools in Bangladesh alone, they are preparing to take on Burma and Thailand . Europe and North America is not left out, or China.

  • Icarus Tanović

    This is all because Anwar Al-Sadat’s stupid policy.
    That’s why he was assassinated after all.
    Now, all that, Egyptian Ullema blind eye on Wahabie influence and business there is breaking against theirs heads.
    Wahhabies are PEST TO BE DESTROYED!

    • velociraptor

      Yes, this filthy animal lost the yom kippour war.

  • John Mason

    It has been proven that the 3 main state sponsors of terrorists are the US, UK and France and why those counties affected by their actions just sit on their back sides and complain is a real concern, one would think that they would retaliate by imposing terrorist proxies onto to them.

    • You can call me Al

      No Israel ? you are kidding right ?.

      • John Mason

        Left out Israel because the US is controlled by them and that is common knowledge, Saudi in the same boat.
