January 2015 Sinai & Terrorism Log for Egypt

1 Feb

This is a log of many incidents in January 2015 which pertain to Egypt’s campaign in the Sinai and against terrorism and violent pro-Muslim Brotherhood actions on the mainland, or other security-related matters.

I haven’t posted for a long time!  The campaign in the Sinai has been effective and therefore the Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis have increased their propaganda, using the new name State of Sinai and linking themselves with ISIS.  They have money (what’s the source of that) and are using it to try to gain loyalties.  However, most of mainstream media and the few who focus on Sinai in DC based (not very pro-Egypt) institutes either report on the failure of the campaign or the repressiveness of Egypt in the Sinai.

Jan 31 Egyptian Interior Ministry employee killed: shot in the head in his home in al-Arish. http://english.alarabiya.net/en/News/middle-east/2015/01/31/Egyptian-interior-ministry-employee-killed-in-Sinai.html

They use the article also to criticize Obama, for supporting the Sisi government . http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/the-us-is-complacent-as-egypt-repeats-its-history-of-repression/2015/01/29/d07fe6fc-a716-11e4-a2b2-776095f393b2_story.html
