Wednesday, November 14th, 2012

Egyptian military sources confirmed on Wednesday that missiles were launched from the northern Sinai town of Rafah at the Israeli kibbutz Kerem Shalom, Egypt Independent reported.

Israel and Egypt will be forming a joint military committee at Israel’s request to examine the circumstances surrounding the missile launch, the sources said.

Israel’s Channel 10 reported that four missiles fired from Rafah struck southern Israel in an area near the Gaza Strip‫.

Three of them landed in an open area, while the fourth hit Kerem Shalom in the Eshkol region but did not cause any injuries or damage, Channel 10 reported.

Egyptian PM Vehicle Attacked at Funeral for Sinai Dead, Morsy Is No Show

Tuesday, August 7th, 2012

The website Egypt Independent reported Tuesday that Prime Minister Hesham Qandil’s car was vandalized by angry mourners during the funeral of the 16 Egyptian officers who were killed by Palestinian terrorists Sunday afternoon.

The military funeral began at the Unknown Soldier Monument after noon prayers. Eyewitnesses said that as soon as Qandil arrived at the monument, a large number of people attacked his vehicle, lifted their shoes to his face, and chanted putdowns. The car’s windshield was damaged, and the minister’s guards were forced to take a different route to avoid further assaults.

Egyptian president Mohamed Morsy was scheduled to attend the funeral but did not appear.

Several other figures attended, including Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi, members of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, and Grand Sheikh of Al-Azhar Ahmed al-Tayyeb, as well as former presidential candidates Hamdeen Sabbahi, Abdel Moneim Abouel Fotouh, and Amr Moussa. The Salafi Nour Party and the Salafi Dawah were also represented at the funeral.

Morsy was scheduled to visit the seven guards who were injured in the attack afterward.
