Egypt: 25 soldiers killed in Sinai Peninsula ambush

(CNN) -- Suspected militants armed with rocket-propelled grenades killed at least 25 Egyptian soldiers in the border city of Rafah, state-run Nile TV reported Monday.

Rafah, on the border between Egypt and Gaza, is the site of a key border crossing. In response to the attack, Egypt closed the crossing.
The assailants struck two buses carrying security forces in the Sinai Peninsula. At least two other soldiers were injured, Nile TV said.
The Sinai Peninsula is a lawless area that was the site of frequent attacks even before Egypt's latest round of turmoil.

In the past week, about 900 people have been killed -- mostly in Cairo -- after supporters of ousted President Mohamed Morsy clashed with the military-backed interim government. Both sides blame each other for starting the violence.
Many of the Morsy loyalists are supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Islamist group condemned the attack on Egyptian soldiers.

"Our peaceful protests (are) stronger than any weapon, and we don't accept any violence," said Murad Mohamad Ali, media adviser to the Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party.
In May, seven Egyptian solders were kidnapped and held for six days in the Sinai Peninsula, a spokesman for Egypt's armed forces said.

COMMENT:
It is presumed that Israel ignited a fight within the Egyptian army which is a formidable army that was able to confront Israel. Now in the name of terrorist the army chief Sissi is allowing the killing of Army personnel in lieu of huge amount of money for personnel benefit. not only that but also killing innocent in the name of Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization. agreed if is s what about the Israel. Is it not the lone terrorist country and those who all live there are they not terrorist?

In future it seems more fatality would take place under the Military Israeli Paid Egyptian traitors those who removed the democratically elected government. Israel is the master of Egyptian Army ..
