Egypt Seized Two Tons of Explosives Underway to Sinai Peninsula
According to the same source, the state security has threatened terrorists who hide themselves in the desert of Sinai to leave. The source stated that the terrorists are a group of outsiders, “Wahhabis” of Saudi origin, radical Salafis and Muslim Brotherhood elements who infiltrated illegally into sovereign territory of Egypt, in Sinai Peninsula. They all will be killed if they do not return to where they came from.
The sources said that most of the terrorists in Sinai had been eliminated during the Egyptian army Operation “Al-Nisser” “The Eagle” which was stopped following the instructions of the current Egyptian President Mohammad Morsi.The US had told President Morsi to end the operation after the israelis protested against the presence of the Egyptian army in Sinai. The israelis saw the operation as a violation of the Camp David agreement signed between Egypt and israel which does not allow the presence of the Egyptian army in Sinai.According to my source, the security demanded that all the terrorists in Sinai steer free of Egyptian territory and return to where they came from, in the same way as they entered Sinai, whether they entered from the Gaza Strip or from other crossing and locations, their only alternative being to face death. They are ALL wanted, surrounded and under the eyes of the Egyptian security.The Palestinian Hamas figures in Gaza distanced themselves from the terrorist’s attacks in Sinai. The Palestinians accused the Israeli intelligence “Mossad” of helping the terrorists to carry out the attack against the Egyptian army.Operation Eagle was an Egyptian military campaign in the Sinai Peninsula that was launched in August 2011 to confront the Sinai terrorists. The campaign was aimed against the Islamist terrorists, who had been attacking the Egyptian security forces in the Sinai. Another operation named “Operation Sinai” against the terrorists was continued in 2012.
