▸ [Egypt, Sinai, Israel, USA] Egypt’s challenge - Jerusalem Post

It is Jerusalem Post (right leaning but compared with more domestic news sources of Israel have become available in English - not that right leaning either actually.)

Cites “Security sources” - but no guarantee. Iran maybe behind this? Cannot  be completely denied. 

Perpetrator’s identities, purposes and tenets/dogmas aside,  general direction is -

Egypt, aided by Israel and USA, is going to deal with ‘extremists’ (Global Jihadist groups) in Sinai. 

Security sources in Egypt said they believed the attack might have been planned by Islamic Jihad in Gaza together with Iranian-funded terrorists in Egypt. The terrorists were said to have been Sinai Beduin recruited by the Global Jihad group affiliated with al-Qaida. Hamas denied any involvement, calling it “an ugly crime.”

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, on a visit to the site of the foiled attack at Kerem Shalom Monday, voiced, on behalf of the Israeli people, his sorrow over the loss of Egyptian lives.

“Israel and Egypt have a shared interest in maintaining a quiet border,” Netanyahu said. “But when talking about the security of Israeli citizens, Israel must and will rely only on itself.”

Defense Minister Ehud Barak noted that Israel had been in contact with the Egyptian authorities to offer its help, and called it “a wake-up call for the Egyptians to take matters into their own hands on their side of the border.”

“The way these assailants acted once again shows the need for the Egyptian authorities to act firmly to reestablish security and fight terror in Sinai,” Barak said.

It won’t be easy for Egyptian authorities to reassert control in Sinai and along the border with Israel. But with help from Israel and the US, it certainly can be done.

What is required from Egypt is a concerted campaign to expel Iranian-backed Global Jihad terrorists, remove arms caches in Sinai and Gaza, and halt the funding and training of Sinai Beduin by Iran, Global Jihad and al-Qaida.
