DAMASCUS, SYRIA (1:25 A.M.) – On Monday, ISIS deployed guerrilla warfare to devastating effect as its combattants infiltrated and overran an Egyptian Army outpost on the eastern outskirts of Al-Arish, known to be Sinai’s provincial capital.

Led by a fighting force of about a dozen hardline jihadists, ISIS caught the Egyptian garrison completely off-guard and beheaded several government soldiers upon capture. The Egyptian Army then seemingly withdrew from the point, leaving behead a T-72 tank and weaponry as spoils of war for the Islamic State.

Before leaving the site, ISIS insurgents torched the encampment and then later shelled it with missiles once it was recaptured by the Egyptian Army, images of the incident reveal:

Over the weekend, a similar hit-and-run attack took place at the western entrance of Al-Arish, suggesting ISIS to have the city on lockdown from two axes.

Hundreds of jihadist sleeper cells are said to be living inside the city, signified by a number of ISIS assassinations in broad daylight against police officers in downtown Al-Arish.

Although the powerful Egyptian Army has ISIS’ inland branch outnumbered approximately 500-to-1, government forces have been unable to uncover the jihadist network of communication while its the country’s jets have struggled to pinpoint Islamic State targets in the vast and sparsely populated Sinai Peninsula.

What a situation!
Egypt wanted to be on the margins of the war against ISIS from its neighboring Syria, leaving it completely to its fate, and now it is suffering in its own flesh the storms of the demons of ISIS alone too.
For some the word ” union ” means nothing to them.
Then, well deserved Egypt.
