Seven terrorists killed in battle at MFO’s North Sinai HQ

Egyptian security officials Sunday reported that government forces had killed seven terrorists in raids of their hideouts in the village of al-Ghora 30 kilometers south of El Arish in N. Sinai. They were the first terrorist losses since gunmen killed 16 Egyptian soldiers in attacks on Egyptian and Israel military targets last Sunday. DEBKAfile: The Cairo statement omitted to mention that the battle was fought to lift the Islamist terrorists’ siege on the multinational force’s northern headquarters at al Ghora, most of whose members are Americans. There is no word about the outcome of the battle.
