The extremist organizations in Sinai are affiliated with El-Qaeda and have found refuge in the secluded desert in the last few years. Over the last few months, after the fall of Morsi’s government, more and more attacks have been carried out in the Peninsula, by the terrorist organizations and by the military against them.
Last month the Egyptian military went on an aerial attack in Sinai against the extremist Islamic organizations operating in the area. According to a report by AP news agency, tens of armed men were killed in the attack, many more were injured.
