Ten jihadists were killed in the last two days in the Sinai Peninsula, Egypt, during a military operation against Islamist fighters, reported Thursday, July 18 a military source quoted by the official MENA news agency.
The situation is tense in the Sinai Peninsula, where attacks against the police and army but also civilians have intensified since the overthrow of President Mohamed Morsi, July 3, following massive protests demanding his departure. Tuesday evening, six soldiers and two civilians were wounded in a rocket attack by unidentified gunmen in the town of Rafah on the border with the Palestinian enclave of Gaza. On Wednesday, a policeman was killed in front of his office by unidentified gunmen.
The Sinai region is mainly populated by Bedouins, whose relations with the central government have long been difficult. Radical Islamist groups have also made their rear base to launch attacks against Israel. The Egyptian military presence is limited by the peace treaty with Israel in 1979, but Israel has given the green light to the deployment of additional Egyptian forces. The first reinforcements, including a score of tanks and troop transport vehicles arrived Tuesday in Al-Arish, capital of North Sinai Governorate, according to Egyptian security services.
