Thirty Egyptian tribes based in Sinai said on Sunday they would confront militant groups including an Islamic State affiliate that has killed hundreds of soldiers and police, in a possible boost to Egypt’s efforts to improve security.
Three armed Palestinians were killed Wednesday by the Egyptian army in the northern Sinai near the border with the Gaza Strip, according to medical and security officials.
An Egyptian television personality sent Israel some strong signs of support for any possible Jewish state move that could lead to an attack on Iran, telling Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu bluntly: Go ahead and bomb.
They closed it due to terrorist attacks. But when they did, some 35-hundred Palestinians got stranded on the Egyptian side. So today, Egypt has reopened the border crossing to Gaza. But the move is just a temporary one.
