Police and armed forces launched on Saturday the largest and most violent military operation yet seen in the Sinai Peninsula against militant locations in southern Sheikh Zuweid and western Rafah. Ground forces, which raided a number of houses located in the Al-Muqata, Al-Zahir, Al-Aujra, Al-Tuma, Al-Jura, Al-Qaria and Al-Mahadia neighbourhoods, were accompanied by a number of Apache helicopters.

Armed forces also bombed militants’ locations in Central Sinai amid reports of casualties in the region.

A security source stated that the initial attack resulted in the death of 10 militants and injuring of 20 others, in addition to the arrest of 15 armed assailants. Eye witnesses stated that during the campaign, armed forces employed nearly 30 different types of tanks and armoured vehicles, along with 6 Apache helicopters which were used to pursue militants attempting to flee the area. A number of those militants were arrested after blockades were set up in neighbourhoods located in southern Rafah.

Eye witnesses stated that Apache helicopters launched strikes against militant locations in southern Sheikh Zuweid and Rafah, accompanied by tanks and armored vehicles. Witnesses further described loud explosions being heard in the area, along with rising clouds of smoke, after a number of four-wheel-drive pickup trucks had been attacked, which led to the death and injury of a number of individuals.

A number of weapons depositories and facilities thought to house vehicles owned by militants were also attacked and destroyed, which led to the death of a number of militants.

All telephone and internet service provider networks operating throughout Northern Sinai were shut down during the operation.

    Dumb Jew-run USA still does not get the message: Arabs, Moslems, M.E. Christians, Easterners and almost all other countries in the world have had enough of being exploited and Intimidate by the Jew-run USA Imperial Military! Since Jews FDR, Truman and Churchill (both homosexuals) created CHOSEN, RACIST, GENOCIDE-COMMITTING Israel, ALL USA Presidents, bar none (& 85% Congress) are Jews, converts from Judaism, married to Jewesses or have Jew blood, including Barack Dunham (Jew) wh is married to part-Jew Michelle Cohen(super Jew). America is good at preaching equality, justice, honorability but Jews are liars and HYPOCRITES! We now know you. Hey,Obama! You promised so many things, including making Turkey apologize for its GENOCIDE of Armenians and restoring the dignity and humanity of Arabs, Moslems, true M.E. Christians, Latin Americans etc etc. Show us one promise you kept to NON-JEWS, i.e. GENTILES (Jew for ALL LEPROUS OTHERS)? You just gave Racist CHOSEN Israel $500 Billion (as if non-Jews don’t need the money in US) in Stealth bombers, white phosphorous, Iron Dome, Patriot Missiles and advanced weaponry. Enough! Enough!

    The time has come for use of explosive deterrent against Genocidal dictators.

    Terror & Jihad is unacceptable.

    No hands across the water – Just bomb those that misbehave – without warning and without UN approval.
