    Egypt militant attacks

    Gunmen Kill 15 and Steal Vehicle in Attack on Egypt Base

    President Mohamed Morsi, center, met with senior generals and security officials at an emergency meeting after 15 Egyptians soldiers were killed

    CAIRO — Masked gunmen opened fire on an Egyptian Army checkpoint in the northern Sinai Peninsula on Sunday, killing 15 soldiers who were preparing to break their Ramadan fast. The gunmen then seized at least one armored vehicle and headed toward Israel, apparently in an attempt to storm the border, witnesses and officials said.

    An armored vehicle was left near Kerem Shalom crossing.

    An Israeli military spokesman said a vehicle exploded at the border, and another was struck by the Israeli Air Force at the Kerem Shalom border crossing, on the southern tip of the Gaza Strip. Images broadcast on television showed an armored vehicle after the attack, in flames.

    It was the deadliest assault on Egyptian soldiers in recent memory. There were no immediate claims of responsibility in the attack, in which seven soldiers were wounded, including three in critical condition, the Egyptian Health Ministry said. An Egyptian security official, speaking on state television, blamed Islamist militants operating in Sinai, along with militants who had crossed into Egypt from the nearby Gaza Strip.

    Egyptian state media later reported that one of the gunmen had been killed and that another had been arrested. Officials said the Rafah border crossing with Gaza was closed after the attack. Clashes continued late Sunday near the border.

    The killings were part of an escalation in violence for Sinai, long neglected by the government and slipping from its control. Armed groups there have frequently targeted the security forces. The problems in the region deepened after the Egyptian uprising in 2011, as police and security officers fled their posts and militants, including foreign fighters, established a presence.

    The killing of the soldiers represented the first security crisis for Egypt’s new president, Mohamed Morsi, who appeared on television to offer condolences to the victims’ families after meeting with senior generals and security officials.

    “There’s no room to appease this treachery, this aggression and this criminality,” Mr. Morsi said. Security forces would extend “full control” over the area, he said, adding, “Sinai is safe.”

    The attack was also likely to add further tension to Egypt’s troubled relationship with Israel. Israeli officials have become increasingly vocal about security lapses in the border region after periodic infiltrations, including a deadly attack by gunmen who crossed the border in June.

    In a statement, the Israeli defense minister, Ehud Barak, said that “the militants’ attack methods again raise the need for determined Egyptian action to enforce security and prevent terror in the Sinai,” according to The Associated Press.

    Officials with Hamas, the Islamist group that governs the Gaza Strip, condemned the attack, calling it “terror.” Hamas officials said that tunnels that are used for smuggling between Egypt and Gaza had been closed in response to the attack.

    A statement attributed to the Hamas Interior Ministry said, “Palestinian resistance factions are committed to fighting only against the Israeli occupation, and they launch their operations only from the Palestinian territories.”

    The attack on the checkpoint began at sundown, according to witnesses who said gunmen driving three Toyota Land Cruisers fired guns at a group of about 25 soldiers and officers who were preparing to break their fast.

    An unknown number of gunmen then took an armored vehicle from the base, witnesses and Egyptian security officials said.

    Reports differed about what happened next. An Egyptian official said some gunmen abandoned an armored vehicle near the Kerem Shalom border crossing between Egypt and Gaza after Israeli soldiers fired on it. Ofir Gendelman, a spokesman for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel, said on Twitter that seven militants were killed. At the checkpoint after the attack, blood and bread mixed on the ground. The dead included at least one officer, according to security officials.

    Jodi Rudoren contributed reporting from Jerusalem, and Fares Akram from Gaza.

    Egypt vows strong response to Sinai attack
    President pledges to retake control of Sinai after 16 Egyptian guards killed in armed attack near the Israeli border.

    06 Aug 2012

    Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi has vowed that he will retake control of the Sinai after an attack near the Israeli border left at least 16 Egyptian guards dead.

    The Israeli military says that five of the attackers, who attempted to enter Israel through the crossing during the raid, were killed.

    "I have given clear orders to all of our security forces, the armed forces as well as the interior police, to move swiftly in capturing those behind this vicious attack," Morsi said in a television address early on Monday.

    "This incident will not go lightly. The security forces will implement entire control over all of these areas within Sinai and will ensure they are controlling it. Those behind the attacks will pay a high price as well as those who have been co-operating with those attackers, be it those inside or anywhere in Egypt."

    Sunday's assault at Karem Abu Salem crossing in north Sinai - on the border between Egypt and Israel - took place as gunmen reportedly tried to smash their way across the border into Israel.

    The Israeli military said the attack was part of a plot to abduct an Israeli soldier, and two vehicles commandeered by the attackers crashed into Israel, where one blew up.

    Egyptian state television said that armed foreign fighters were behind the attack.

    "State media is quoting unnamed officials saying that foreign fighters, armed groups, belonging to some previously unknown extremist group have infiltrated the country from Gaza through the tunnels criss-crossing the porous border area," Al Jazeera's Rawya Rageh reported from Cairo on Sunday.

    "But we are unable to independently corroborate these allegations just yet," she said.

    Rageh said the border police patrol were ambushed by masked armed men while they were having their traditional meal at the end of the daily fast during the Muslim month of Ramadan.

    Strong response

    After the attack, Morsi held an urgent meeting with the country's military, and promised a strong response to the attack.

    "Those who were martyred in this attack during the time when they were breaking their fast during this holy month of Ramadan, those martyrs, their blood will not go in vain," Morsi said.


    A senior security official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not allowed to speak to reporters, said seven other guards were wounded in the attack.

    He said the attackers seized an armoured vehicle before driving away.

    Israel said the attackers commandeered two Egyptian vehicles and tried to storm its border.

    One of the vehicles exploded and the second was targeted by Israeli aircraft, Avital Leibovich, a military spokeswoman.

    Ehud Barak, Israel's defence minister, said that eight of the attackers had been killed. He said the raid showed need for "determined Egyptian action" to impose security and "prevent terror in Sinai".

    Brigadier-General Yoav Mordechai, an Israeli military spokesperson, said on Monday that intelligence services had received reports of a planned attack beforehand and were "prepared for it".

    'Ugly crime'

    In a statement, Hamas, the Palestinian group controlling the Gaza Strip near Sinai, condemned the attack, calling it an "ugly crime" and extended "deep condolences to the families of the victims and to the leadership and the people of Egypt".

    Security officials told Al Jazeera early on Monday that they were in possession of three bodies of the perpetrators of the attack. The three are believed to have been killed while trying to enter Israel.

    The official did not specify whether those attackers were killed by Egyptian or Israeli fire. He said that 10 people were believed to have carried out the attack.

    Al Jazeera reporters said there was increased security along the border area following the attack. "The entire border area has been sealed with very heavy security on all the roads leading up to Sinai and not just the border area," Rageh said.

    Meanwhile Al Jazeera's Cal Perry reported from Jerusalem that Egypt has indefinitely shut down the Rafah crossing on the border with the Gaza Strip. Rafah is the only crossing into Gaza not controlled by Israel.

    Taher al-Nono, a Hamas spokesperson, meanwhile, said that the group was temporarily closing all tunnels along the border with Egypt immediately.

    The Sinai is home to Egypt's Red Sea resorts, a source of lucrative tourist income, and is also where the country's Bedouin, who were long marginalised under the regime of fallen president Hosni Mubarak, are based.

    "There was actually a warning out three days ago directed at Israeli civilians who vacation in the Sinai, warning against possible kidnapping attacks and threats from the Sinai," reported Al Jazeera's Perry.

    "The Sinai is known [in Israel] as the 'wild west' [...] because really the lawlessness is out of control. There are drug runners, there are smugglers, and there's a lot of arms in the Sinai peninsula. Add to that the tunnel system from Gaza, and I think this is something that we'll be seeing the Israelis take action on in the next 24 hours."

    The attack comes a month after armed men believed to be Islamist fighters shot dead two Egyptian soldiers in a dawn raid in north Sinai.

    Before the July attack in Sheikh Zuwaid, a town roughly 15km west of the Gaza Strip, the fighters had distributed pamphlets calling on the army, brought in to restore security, to leave the lawless north of the peninsula.

    The military sent tanks and soldiers into the region last year to quell Islamist fighters, after receiving permission from Israel. Under a 1979 peace treaty with Israel, Egypt should have a limited military presence in the area.

    Sinai Salafists threaten Israel, Egypt security

    Fears that Iranian weapons smuggled from Sudan could reach jihadi groups as Egypt continues to struggle to exert control over Sinai.

    Security in the increasingly lawless Sinai peninsula continued to be a pressing issue in both Egypt and Israel this week, with threats to both countries from the al-Qaida affiliated Salafist jihadi groups who have found fertile breeding grounds in the Sinai peninsula since the Egyptian revolution.

    On Thursday, Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated Freedom and Justice Party demanded that law enforcement authorities must move to regain control of security in Sinai, following a week of reports of terrorist activity in the troubled peninsula.

    Over the past months, al-Qaida linked groups have conducted a series of deadly terrorist attacks against both Egyptian and Israeli interests on the border, including the September 21 shooting that killed 20-year-old Corporal Natanel Yehoshua Yahalomi.

    The increased jihadi activity in Sinai threatens security in both Egypt and Israel, and has led to increasing calls for President Mohammad Morsi to amend the Camp David peace accords with Israel to allow for a greater Egyptian military presence in Sinai.

    On Tuesday, a Cairo court dismissed a petition calling for the peace agreement to be amended, but the future of the Camp David accords is likely to remain a pressing political issue in Egypt.

    Meanwhile, the arrest by the Egyptian authorities of a terror cell suspected to be linked to al-Qaida in Nasr City last week has heightened fears in both countries that extremists are expanding out of Sinai and into other areas of Egypt.

    Those fears are also bolstered by growing move by al-Qaida to align itself with extremist Salafist-Jihadist elements across the Arab world, including in Egypt.

    In a recent video posted on jihadist websites, al-Qaida leader Ayman al-Zawahiri incited Egyptians to rise up against their government and "grab Egypt's dignity and honor from corrupt hands".

    Meanwhile, the most active Salafist jihadi groups in Gaza, including Ansar Bayit al-Maqdis ('Supporters of Jerusalem') and the Mujahideen Shura Council in the Environs of Jerusalem (MSC), have targeted Israeli interests and continue to threaten Israel.

    In response, Israel has stepped up its counter-terrorism activities, last month carrying out a successful targeted killing of two senior MSC operatives, Hisham Ali Abd al-Karim Saidani, codenamed Abu al-Walid al-Maqdisi; and Ashraf Salah.

    However, MSC continues to threaten Israel. On Wednesday, MSC posted a statement on jihadist websites saying the terror group was seeking "reward from Allah" for Israel's targeted killings of Saidani and Salah.

    In its statement, the MSC calls on Muslims to confront "the hateful Jews", saying that the "treacherous assassination by criminal Jewish warplanes" of Saidani and Salah should motivate Muslims to wage jihad.

    The MSC also slammed Hamas, who had previously detained and imprisoned Saidani for his role in confrontations between Hamas and Salafist jihadi operations in Gaza.

    Gunmen launch string of attacks across Egypt‏

    Suspected Islamist gunmen launched a string of attacks against Egyptian security forces across the country on Monday, a day after more than 50 were killed in protests against the military-backed government.

    A car bomb hit security headquarters in a southern Sinai town, killing two people and injuring around 50 after, security and medical officials said.

    In the northeastern city of Ismailia, five soldiers were killed when gunmen opened fire on the soldiers while they were sitting in a car at a checkpoint, a vital global trade route, according to Reuters.

    In Cairo, unknown assailants fired rocket propelled grenades at communication satellite dishes damaging one, security officials told AFP.

    The officials said one of the rockets left a 25 centimeter (nine inch) breach in a satellite dish used for international phone calls. It is not yet known if the attacks are related to Sunday’s protests, in which clashes between rival factions killed 53 people.

    War anniversary clashes
    The day was described as one of the bloodiest days since the ousting of former Egyptian President Mohammad Mursi in July this year. Mursi supporters battled security forces and army supporters, mainly in Cairo, on the anniversary of the 1973 war with Israel.

    State radio reported that security had regained full control of Egypt but that the clashes had left 271 people wounded, according to Reuters. The Muslim Brotherhood has urged Egyptians to stage more protests against the army takeover in Tahrir Square on Friday.

    The recent clashes are certain to set back efforts by Egyptian’s fragile transitional government to revive the country’s stagnant economy, particularly the vital tourism sector, and bring order to the streets of Cairo, where crime and chaos have been rife.

    The scene of the fighting contrasted with a festive mood in Cairo’s central Tahrir Square, where thousands waved Egyptian flags, blew whistles and touted posters of army chief General Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi to the tune of a military band playing.

    Taking part in the festivities, Sisi and interim President Adly Mansour attended a fireworks extravaganza late on Sunday at a military-owned stadium in eastern Cairo.

    The Anti-Coup Alliance, the Pro-Mursi Islamist group led by the Brotherhood has repeatedly called for protests against the military's overthrow of Mursi, but its ability to mobilize large crowds has declined as security forces have detained more than 2,000 Islamists including several top Brotherhood leaders.

    Interim President Adly Mansour has also called on Egyptians to take to the streets to commemorate the day. In a televised speech on Saturday he said that authorities will “defeat much-hated terrorism and blind violence with the rule of law that will protect the freedom of citizens and resources.”

    Egypt pledges 'decisive' action after militants kill six soldiers



    CAIRO: Egypt's interim government pledged “decisive”action and ordered heightened security on Sunday after gunmen killed six soldiers at a Cairo checkpoint, as the countdown began to presidential elections this spring.

    The shooting on Saturday morning came two days after gunmen killed a soldier in Cairo, as militants once based in the Sinai Peninsula widen attacks that surged after the army overthrew Islamist president Mohamed Morsi last July.

    The government is preparing for a presidential election this spring that will likely be contested and won by army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, the field marshal who overthrew Morsi.

    Sisi is expected to resign as defence minister and army chief and announce his candidacy this week, following the interim president's approval of a law to organise the poll.

    His supporters see him as the best suited leader to restore stability and law and order amid persistent militant attacks and street protests by Morsi's supporters.

    In Saturday's attack, masked gunmen opened fire on military policemen as they were finishing their morning Muslim prayers and then planted two bombs to target first responders, the military said in a statement. The health ministry said six soldiers were killed.

    In an emergency meeting that ended early Sunday morning, the cabinet decided to “decisively confront whoever attacks citizens and civilian and government installations,” it said in a statement.

    It emphasised that attacks on the army would be dealt with by military courts, in accordance with a constitution approved in a referendum in January.

    The government also ordered heightened security measures to counter what has become a low-level insurgency that has killed more 200 soldiers and policemen since Morsi's overthrow.

    Most of the attacks since have been carried out in the Sinai, but militants have expanded their reach to the Nile Delta and the capital in recent months.

    The government has mostly blamed Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood, which renounced violence decades ago and has denied any involvement.

    The most prominent attacks, including a car bombing at a police headquarters in Cairo and the downing of a military helicopter in Sinai, have been claimed by Ansar Beit al-Maqdis (Partisans of Jerusalem), a Sinai-based jihadist movement.

    The group said in a statement Friday that one of its founders, Tawfiq Mohamed Fareej, died last week when a car accident set off a bomb he was carrying.

    Fareej led a 2011 cross-border attack in Israel that killed eight people and was also involved in a failed attempt on the life of Egypt's interior minister, it said.

    The group has said the attacks in Egypt are in retaliation for a brutal government crackdown on Morsi's Islamist supporters, which Amnesty International says has claimed some 1,400 lives.

    Growing militancy

    Morsi won Egypt's first-ever democratic presidential election, following the 2011 uprising that ended Hosni Mubarak's three-decade rule.

    But his year in power bitterly polarised Egyptians, and the military ousted him amid mass protests demanding his overthrow.

    Since his ouster and subsequent arrest, his supporters have staged weekly rallies that often set off deadly clashes with security forces and Morsi opponents.

    Meanwhile, the army has poured troops and armour into the lawless Sinai to combat the growing militancy, often targeting suspected gunmen with air strikes.

    Analysts say the army campaign has led the jihadist militants in Sinai, some inspired by Al Qaeda, to adapt by staging less frequent but more widespread attacks across the country.

    With the Brotherhood decapitated by the crackdown, some of its members might also have decided to form militant cells to target policemen, they say.

    Morsi, who is still in jail, faces three separate trials for involvement in the killing of opposition protesters and collusion with militants to carry out attacks in Egypt.

    Cairo bomb blasts kill two Egyptian policemen



    Two bombs have exploded near a presidential palace in Egypt's capital, Cairo, killing two police officers.

    The first blast killed one officer and injured three others. The second device blew up as security forces tried to defuse it, killing the other officer.

    Islamist militants said they had planted bombs in the area last week.

    The attack coincides with the first anniversary of the mass opposition protests that led to the military overthrowing President Muhammad Morsi.

    Cairo's security chief told BBC Arabic that the head of the bomb-disposal department, Gen Alaa Abdel Zaher, was among those injured by Monday's explosions.

    Meanwhile, the civil defence deputy chief said security forces were currently defusing two other bombs found outside the presidential palace.

    A source inside the presidential palace said President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi's schedule had not been changed following the blasts.

    Bombings and shootings by Islamist militants have left hundreds of security personnel dead since Mr Morsi was ousted on 3 July.

    The militants have stepped up attacks in response to the crackdown on Mr Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood and its allies, in which more than 1,400 people have been killed and 16,000 detained.

    Sinai blast kills 11 Egypt policemen: security official

    CAIRO: Eleven Egyptian policemen were killed when a roadside bomb blast struck their armoured vehicle in the restive Sinai Peninsula on Tuesday, security officials said.

    Militants have claimed a string of attacks that have killed scores of policemen and soldiers, mostly in north Sinai, since the army overthrew president Mohamed Morsi in July last year.

    Another four conscripts were wounded in the explosion on a road leading to the town of Rafah bordering the Palestinian Gaza Strip.

    The military has sought to quell the militants in a massive operation that has killed scores of extremists and netted some of their leaders.

    The main militant group, Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, has acknowledged in statements the loss of some of its leaders, but has continued to attack both the security forces and Bedouin suspected of collaborating with them.

    The group, whose name means Partisans of Jerusalem, has also said it was behind deadly bombings of police buildings in the capital and the Nile Delta.

    Casualties in bomb blast near Egypt's foreign ministry

    A bomb explosion near the Egyptian foreign ministry in Cairo has killed at least two police officers, security officials say.

    The blast occurred on a crowded street near the River Nile. Witnesses said smoke was seen rising from the area.

    No group has so far claimed responsibility for the explosion.

    Islamist militants have intensified attacks on the security forces since the army ousted President Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood in 2013.

    Sunday's blast occurred in the Bulaq Abu-al-Ila district.

    The bomb is believed to have been planted below a tree.

    Initial reports said at least four people - two policemen and two civilians - were killed.

    Security officials later sealed off the area, looking for more bombs, Egypt's Mena news agency reports.

    The Islamist violence at first targeted mostly police and the army in the Sinai peninsula, but has recently spread to other regions including the capital.

    The militants say they are taking revenge for the hundreds of Islamists killed and thousands detained in a crackdown on the Brotherhood.

    http://www.hrw.org/news/2014/08/12/e...ainst-humanity

    (Cairo) – The systematic and widespread killing of at least 1,150 demonstrators by Egyptian security forces in July and August 2013 probably amounts to crimes against humanity, Human Rights Watch said today in a report based on a year-long investigation. In the August 14 dispersal of the Rab’a al-Adawiya sit-in alone, security forces, following a plan that envisioned several thousand deaths, killed a minimum of 817 people and more likely at least 1,000.

    ..............

    These are Salafist AQ sympathizers behind these attacks.

    7 militants killed, 15 arrested in Sinai

    Local Sinai journalist Ahmed Abou Deraa has told Daily News Egypt that a military campaign was launched on Tuesday against militants in South Sheikh Zuweid and South Rafah in Sinai that left 7 militants affiliated with Ansar Beit Al-Maqdis dead and 15 militants arrested.

    According to Abou Deraa, the campaign’s main aim was to maintain security and prohibit any “terrorist operations” during Eid Al-Adha or the celebrations of 6th of October.

    Abou Deraa also noted that a tunnel that used in smuggling operations to Gaza was destroyed. He added that the military campaigns will be going on till the end of the celebrations of 6th of October.

    Military campaigns have increased in Sinai in response to an increase in attacks by militants since the military’s ouster of former president Mohamed Morsi. Dozens of attacks have been claimed by Ansar Beit Al-Maqdis, including an assassination attempt against Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim.
