Egypt: Military Launches Operation In Sinai

The Egyptian military launched an operation to combat terrorism and violence in the Sinai Peninsula on July 27, unnamed military sources said, Xinhua reported, citing state-owned Ahram. In the operation, dubbed "Desert Storm," formations from the country's second and third field military are seeking to siege terrorism elements and centers in the desert and mountain roads, especially in the northern and middle areas of the peninsula, the source said. The first wave of the operation will take 48 hours, he said, and the army, naval and air forces have imposed strict control measures over roads, tunnels and ferries connecting Sinai with other governorates. The military is taking advantage of Egypt's recent political chaos to try to bring Sinai militancy back to tolerable levels.
