Egyptian military consolidates grip on northern Sinai

A string of watchtowers, checkpoints and army posts mark the northern edge of Egypt's Sinai Peninsula and troops patrol in armored vehicles along repaved roads. Branch roads have been blocked off with piles of sand and some houses demolished to deprive militants of cover between Al Arish and Sheikh Zuweid, a focal point of the war between the Egyptian military and Islamist insurgents over the past decade. The measures reflect a significant shift in the security situation in the past two years.

The military has secured large areas of the strategic stretch of land bordering Palestinian-run Gaza and Israel on one side and the Suez Canal on the other, and is no longer on the back foot, witnesses, security sources and analysts say. Civilian life is still severely curtailed but the long-neglected region is changing as the state forges ahead with development schemes.

Ghoti Ichthus

Pray so they do not serve alone. Ephesians 6:10-20
Wonder if they're abiding by the Camp David Accords :tappingfoot
Note: The Camp David Accords are not the same as the Oslo Accords. Zones A, B, C, and D of the former are not the same as Areas A, B, and C of the latter. And the Multinatinal Forces and Observers (MFO) is not UN. Easy way to tell them apart in photos and news coverage, MFO wears orange berets and UN wears blue berets/helmets.

I hope all the ancient historic sites, Bible sites, and Church sites are safe/protected.


My favorite duty assignment was in the Sinai South Camp :smile
Got to visit a lot of Biblical, Church, and prophetic sites :thankyou JESUS!!! :thankyou


:pray :pray :amen :amen
