Israel: Egypt Fighting Serious Battle Against Sinai Terror

(Haaretz) Gili Cohen - Maj.-Gen. (res.) Amos Gilad, the head of the diplomatic-security bureau of the Israel Defense Ministry , told a conference at the International Institute for Counter-Terrorism at the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya on Sunday that the Egyptian military is now waging a determined battle against terrorism in Sinai, sparked by Islamic militant attacks on Egyptian forces. "Israel is not connected to this struggle, which stems from internal conclusions that have been made by the Egyptians.

"It is very important that the Egyptians are carrying out a broad campaign against terror, and what they are doing is impressive."
