A new terrorist attack today in Sinai kills 5 soldiers
A terrorist organization attacked an Egyptian army barracks in the Rafah district of Sinai today, killing five troops, one of them was an officer.
The army roped off the location, searched it, and pursued the terrorists in the surrounding districts.
This attack, according to experts, was the deadliest in a long time, and it confirms these groups’ inability to launch new terrorist operations in Sinai during Ramadan and Eid, especially after the armed forces surrounded them and the tribes cooperated with the state in eliminating many terrorist outposts.
