Almost immediately the Caliphate claimed responsibility for another attack. And, just yesterday, Egyptian security forces reported that they had covered the warehouse with explosives and homemade bombs.
It is obvious that the strikes are an attempt by DAESH to make up for losses in battles with the Egyptian army in the Sinai Peninsula, where the army and security forces struggling to cauterize the ulcer of the Caliphate of the sparsely populated areas of the Sinai. In late March, the army conducted a successful RAID in the mountainous areas, the result of which was eliminated several militants, and 30 captured.
In this fight the parties shall bear the loss, but the Egyptians due to the superiority in numbers and equipment, in General, have the upper hand over the militants, who are unable to defeat the Egyptians (though the military, they are biting), and therefore choose their goals of government officials, Christians, the objects of tourist infrastructure. Another brutal terrorist attacks remind us that the problem of the Caliphate can be solved only by the destruction of its organizational institutions and the physical liquidation of members of the organization.
Below, pictures of the war in the Sinai. This war is certainly in the shadow of the Syrian war, but to forget about it not worth it, because Egypt at this stage plays an important moderating role, preventing the Caliphate to spread its influence in North Africa and not allowing full use of the land of Egypt for the development of springboard from which the Caliphate could start its expansion in the North-East of Africa.
