DAMASCUS, SYRIA (11:30 P.M.) – The Egyptian Army continues to pursue all thinkable measures to quell the jihadist insurgency on the Sinai Peninsula, looking to restore order to the sparsely populated desert governorate and defeat ISIS’ Egyptian franchise branch.

Rare video material released by the Egyptian Air Force shows its warplanes conducting pinpoint airstrikes on ISIS gathering points at undisclosed locations in northern Sinai:

Another video newly released video shows Egyptian tanks and Humvees searching for ISIS militants on the outskirts of Al-Arish City:

In addition, an official spokesperson to the Egyptian Armed Forces released pictures of a recent ISIS attack near the provincial capital that was foiled by government forces, resulting in the death of five Islamic State insurgents with six more critically wounded:

Over the past months, Amaq Agency (main ISIS outlet) has released a string of photos detailing jihadist hit-and-run attacks on the Sinai Peninsula, thus indicating that clashes have escalated between the warring parties.

Although a number of Sinai-based tribes have sworn alligience to Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, ISIS is yet to hold on to any substancial territory in the country.

Hope Bercy gives the green-light for more Rafales : they’re fucking efficient at air support. I think the Telson 12F with ILGR and MBDA kit to make the Zuni rockets guided can also greatly help by reducing costs and multiply the numbers of targets hit : Hellfires cost $100k/unit and you won’t carry more than 4 per hardpoint. Here, the costpar unit is about the third then you can fit triple hardpoints with 2 pods of 12 ILGR and one with 4x guided-Zunis.
