Kudos to General Sisi and his troops. At least fifteen militants have reportedly been killed in the Sinai Peninsula in a surprise rocket attack by the Egyptian army.
The state-run Nile TV says Army helicopters targeted militant strongholds in the area — two villages south of Sheikh Zuweid, a town near the border with Israel and the Hamas-run Gaza Strip. At the same time, Egyptian security forces have reportedly destroyed dozens of houses along the border with Gaza. Some local residents fear it is part of an attempt to build a isolating buffer zone. (It IS! Funny when Israel did the same thing, the whole world howled)
