Following the coordinated terror attacks in Sinai that killed dozens of Egyptian soldiers and officers, the Egyptian Air Force attacked targets belonging to the Ansar Bait al-Maqdis organization, which supports the Islamic State. At least 20 people were eliminated in the attacks. Cairo claims the military has gained control over the Northern Sinai Peninsula.
The Egyptian Military attacked targets in the area between Sheikh Zuweid and Rafah. According to reports in Egypt, several senior-level terror organization members were eliminated in the attacks.
The Egyptian television broadcast a photo of the dozens of bodies of terrorists, in which they are seen wearing military uniforms. "The situation is 100% under the military's control," Mohamed Samir, the Egyptian Military spokesperson, stated. "We eliminated nearly 100 terrorists; everything is under the control of the forces in the field."
The Egyptian Air Force Air strikes were implemented after eleven Muslim Brotherhood members were eliminated yesterday in Cairo.
Following the eliminations, the Muslim Brotherhood called out to start rebelling against President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, whom they called the "Butcher", and to regain control of Egypt.
