Egypt launches airstrikes in Sinai for first time since 1973, kills 20 terrorists
Media hypocrisy continues: If Israel launches an attack at terrorists in Gaza and kills even one, it is screaming frontpage headlines around the world. Today, Egypt, employing military jets launched an airstrike in the Sinai for the first time since 1973, and targeted and killed 20 terrorists. The international media is on radio silence.
According to Egyptian security sources, over 2,000 Islamic militants reside in the Sinai region and they intend to hunt them down and kill them all.
Egyptian authorities received Israel’s consent prior to launching the air strikes in Sinai. The source further said that Israel consented to Egypt’s use of advanced military equipment in the attack on area C, a region close to the border with Israel. According to the security source, the operation was coordinated between the two countries and based on the agreed upon order of battle under the Israel-Egypt peace treaty.
