Yesterday in the Sinai Peninsula, at Israel’s border, Egypt’s military killed at least 20 Islamic militants. The strikes were retribution for jihadist attacks on security checkpoints Sunday that killed 16 Egyptian police.
Egypt’s President Mohamed Morsi vowed to retake control of the Sinai following the incident. Yesterday’s events may be just be the start of that mobilization.
