4 Terrorists killed, 7 Injured in Egyptian Army Raid in the Sinai

Sunday, August 11th, 2013

At least four terrorists were killed and seven others injured on Saturday in an air strike of the Egyptian army in north Sinai, on Israel’s border, a local security source told Xinhua.

“The air strike targeted a house, a hut and a car in the village of al-Toma near Sheikh Zewaid city in North Sinai along with more that 10 rockets, while Jihadists replied with heavy artillery but in vain,” the source said.

Military spokesman Colonel Ahmed Mohamed Ali said Saturday that the armed forces attacked a terrorist group planning to launch attacks against army, police and civilians in North Sinai.

Ali said in a statement on his social network page that the terrorist group included members who were involved in the killing of 16 Egyptian soldiers in Rafah city in August 2012 and others involved in kidnapping seven Egyptian soldiers in May.

On Friday, two Egyptian military helicopters struck a rocket base of Jihadist militants in Rafah city in north Sinai.

Senior Terrorist Commander Killed in Gaza

Friday, December 9th, 2011

Sobhi Batash a senior commander in the Al Aksa Martyrs Brigade was killed in an IAF attack on Thursday. Al Aksa Martyrs Brigade claimed responsibility for one of the missile attacks this evening. The Egyptians criticized Israel for violating the cease fire.

 

IDF says that Batash was planning an attack on Israelis in which terrorists would cross over from Gaza into the Egyptian Sinai, then reenter Israel and attack Jewish civilians.

 

In August of this year, in a well-planned and well-armed series of attacks, terrorists crossed over from the Egyptian Sinai and killed 8 Israelis and wounded 40. Six of the killed were civilians. Five Egyptians soldiers were also killed. It is not clear if some of the Egyptians soldiers killed were participating in the attack, killed in a separate attack, killed by a suicide bomber, or killed in the crossfire. 11 terrorists in all were killed, 1 by his own suicide belt.

 

Israel believes the attacks were originated by the PRC in Gaza.
