Sinai terrorists keep up attacks, target US peacekeepers

Despite Egyptian claims of a major offensive against Bedouin Salafist terrorists in Sinai and heavy reinforcements, the gunmen felt safe enough to continue their attacks near the Israeli border – early Sunday on a Sinai multinational force convoy on its way to the Sheikh Zawid base and Saturday night, against Egyptian troops patrolling the Israeli border near the same spot where they killed 16 Egyptian soldiers a week ago. No casualties in either attack. The American soldiers escorting the MFO convoys returned the fire, engaged for the first time in a shooting incident with Al-Qaeda-linked terrorists in Sinai.
